I love the frostbites she gives me in the winter and the stifling heat during the summer, the smell of the wet leaves in the fall, New Years eve and the celebrations of Victory day on May 9th. I cannot imagine a life without her.
I think Russia made me a better person, she certainly gave me perspective and opened my eyes and senses. It is impossible to feel indifferent to mother Russia and is that not a great gift in itself, to not feel indifferent?
