Fascinated with Russians from a very young age, I always find it amazing and reminded how fanatic I am when movies, Hollywood flicks in particular, have Russians as their favorite villains numerously. Turning a Russian spy against her own people is an unpredictable twist in the 2010 movie Salt (Evelyn Salt portrayed by Angelina Jolie). I am a Filipino, proud to be, with Spanish heritage and thanks to Facebook, African as well I believe because of my surname origin. But I like to think that I have a drop of Russian blood in me too because of my undying interests. Like learning their history, language (thanks to Michel Thomas) and cyrillic alphabet to an extent. Which I tend to forget anyway because of having imaginary Russian friends and just being out of practice.
I am a wishful thinker and if I have to tour a country and be part of a whole new world, well, Russia here I come! I have a lifetime to dream or do whatever it takes to make a Dreams of My Russian Summers own life adaptation. Good luck to me!
