Thoughts on study abroad

From a student studying in St. Petersburg, Russia: “I went
to a Russian girl’s birthday party.  It was a lot like an
American birthday party except the food was completely
different (a lot of fish, beets, and coleslaw-type salads),
and almost every person there stood up to make a toast to
the birthday girl.”
