I love a lot of things, Russian girls are definitely one of them. I dated some Russian girls while living in Alaska and made a lot of Russian friends there. I have spent a lot of time in Russia, Ukraine and many former Soviet Republics. I managed to learn to speak Russian during all of this. I guess you could say I am a Russophile.
When I got to Sydney one of my Russian friends in Alaska, Dasha, tagged a Russian girl on one of my posts. I figure it was one of her friends living in Sydney. I was correct. After a brief Facebook stalk, I sent her a message. Turns out she went to high school in Russia with my friend in Alaska. I decided she would become my Sydney guide and invited her to show me around. No one was surprised that I found a Russian girl on day 2 in Australia.
We met in downtown Sydney by a trash can. She asked I don’t use her name so I will call her Wednesday. Wednesday has been in Sydney for a few years studying at university. She proved to be a decent guide but I don’t think she should consider it as a career. She can be classified as a mix between Catherine the Great and Wednesday Addams, she knows what she wants and seldom shows emotion. She showed me some great Sydney landmarks like the Harbor Bridge and Sydney Opera House. She also likes to walk, a lot! I think I walked more in a day with her than I had in the last month in Alaska. We met up several times, always at the same trash can. We were supposed to go to a movie one night but she bailed last minute. We did hang out the next day. After hours of walking in the heat I told her I was hungry and thirsty. She told me, “Ok, I know a place, just 10 more minutes.” After hearing 10 more minutes 10 more times I began to get a bit frustrated.
Like most Russian girls, she “kind of has a boyfriend.”
She is definitely a unique character. I look forward to hanging out with her more.
