Pagina del sito AFS Russia dedicata ad un concorso fra gli afs’rs annuali che dovevano descrivere la loro esperienza e la “loro Russia”.

I think was my first feeling after my arrival in Russia.
I was frightened because I didn’t know anything about russian people, culture, language and it was the first time I was really alone beginning a life I could call indeed “mine”.
