This reminds me of living in St. Petersburg with you Liz. I used to wear heels out all the time and kill my feet in order to ‘fit in’ with the other Russians. I actually broke my heel on one of my boots one day in school, had to take the marshrutka home and wobble over to one of the stalls nears the train station. I had to get about 6 pairs of shoes repaired after I came home. Now I’m sad that regular shoe repair people aren’t around the corner anymore!
All of your videos are so impressive! Rodney Garnett (in Chisinau) is my husband and gave me the URL for your blog site. I am so glad to see these videos–it gives me a better idea of what he is experiencing while he is living there. I am also an ELL teacher in an elementary school and absolutely loved the English club’s first movie! I’m afraid I could not tackle that subject matter at the elementary school level here in Wyoming! :)
Keep up the great work. I have become a follower of your blog.
