Natasha : A colleague and friend : Ferney-Voltaire, FR
This is friend Natasha. We work together at an intergovernmental organization. She's from Russia and speaks four languages flawlessly: Russian, English, French, and Italian. Recently, her mother was visiting from Moscow and they treated us to a traditional Russian meal of borscht, dumplings, and blinis. It was all quite tasty. At the end of the evening, she and her mother played the piano and sang Russian folks songs and we looked through a copy of the book A Day in the Life of the Soviet Union.
