About our home

It's a decent home of 'Une Vieille Russe', you won't find many surviving these days - flats or owners.
I follow the rule ‘don’t fix it, if it ain’t broke’ and keep the old Soviet-time electric sockets, switches and even the fridge – they all were meant to serve a lifetime, and that’s what they do with good care. For this reason I prefer to paint my wooden window frames every year instead of getting those popular plastic ones to give you a greenhouse effect in your own home!
For fresh air I have a lot of pot flowers – they fill you with oxygen. And I like their cheerful green colour!
As modern things go, I have the best Wi-Fi connection I could get with money and a good deal of scolding the provider – I am a translator, and I often have to work at home on weekends. Some 150 cable TV channels go as a bonus, of which you may need the French, German or English language news channels (my mother was a fan of Laurent Delahousse of France 2)– unless you decide to learn Russian!
Besides, I have a good collection of illustrated guidebooks, and I often use them myself – Moscow always has in store something you haven’t seen yet.
The double-bed bedroom is now completely vacant, and I can either do non-simultaneous exchanges or rent it out together with the food you can find in the fridge and the dictionaries in the book-case; I guess it may be interesting for someone learning Russian as students can seldom afford Moscow hotels.
