Russia by Saida Ibrahimava

One of the most important lessons I have learned while in Russia was a lesson on diversity. The life, the landscape, the language, the climate, economy and local customs are different from area to area, from region to region in this huge country.

Only the European part of Russia includes up to 40 ethnic groups, without mentioning the differences between this region and the Siberian or Asian parts of the country. Living and travelling in Russia opens up your mind to a new level of understanding of the natural source of difference, its dependence on the local environment, landscape, and climate. Through both my short and long trips, for pleasure and for business, I have learned not to judge and make conclusions about a person or a place from the first sight. This attitude helped me many times to make my journeys within this country unforgettable, each one of them could be scaled as a spiritual journey.
