International Womens Day
Tomorrow we celebrate a big holiday here in Russia, Intl. Womens Day. It is kind of like Valentines Day on steroids. Most Russians will not work Monday or Tuesday. This is the one day out of the year where all men are expected to treat women like queens. We have heard that it is very common for men to give flowers to random women on the street. All over the city, little stands have magically appeared to sell the most popular flower of the season, the tulip. Men are expected to buy flowers or chocolate for all the important women in their lives, so I bought flowers for Katrina, our teacher Viola, our nanny Larissa and our good friend Julie.
Fun days here in Moscow! Thanks for checking out our blog.
