    Hi everybody! :biggrin:
    I am Daniela. I'm 19. And I'm from Russia.
    I will study at The Language Centre at the University of Leeds since 13 July for 3 weeks.
    I want to find friends to have fun during my free time there.
    Let's communicate! And maybe we will meet in Leeds in July :icon_wink:

    Good luck to the Lass if she is genuine, it is just that there a lot of Russian and East Europeans "Students" looking for friends and a good time in the UK. at this time.

    I was born in Surgut. But now I live in Rostov-on-Don.
    Which cities in Russia have you been to?

    Leningrad (as it was then), Novgorod, Klin, Kalinin, Moscow (of course), Orel, Kiev, Lvov - all part of a caravan tour.
    Went again at Christmas but only to Moscow, by train from Budapest.

    Oho! Even I haven't been to many of these cities!
    And what do you think about Russia? :biggrin:
    I have been to many European cities. And after my travels I began to dream of moving to Europe. :frown:

    Don't be in a rush - Europe isn't all it's cracked up to be!
    I knew Russia only under communism, and it was a great place to visit. Talking to many people living there, it wasn't too bad either, but they all wanted capitalism.
    Russia's eventual downfall! Inflation, black market etc.
    When I went £1 bought you 1.3 Roubles and now you can 50 for £1. Not good.

    Shame, I made some nice friends over there.
