A Taste of Russia

School is finally done! Yesss! And to celebrate the completion of our last final, our Russian class went out to dinner to ‘La Caverne’ or Погребок in the Russian neighbourhood in Cote-des-Neiges. I’m telling you, if that is anything like what Petersburg will be like, I’m ecstatic to go! The food was really good, the people were nice, and after the table next to us downed a 1 litre bottle of vodka (they were 4 people; though the standard group size per bottle of vodka is apparently three…), they started to dance to the music of the live entertainer and made us dance as well! So much fun…


we tried to replicate the weird looks of the people in the ad that our teacher gave us… unfortunately it isn’t anywhere to be found on the internet… But Tim and Bradley are doing a great job, let me assure you.


please note the bear head at the wall. we also found an elk, some fox skins, and one or two stuffed weasels. I guess they are supposed to contribute to the cozy atmosphere.
