Steve: So, yeah. I mean, I feel that my Russian took a big step forward and my motivation is greater than it ever was. But, it was nice to go there and to be able to operate, like I felt comfortable. Other than the odd surly clerk at the train station, most people were very friendly and I could communicate and to them it’s only natural that I speak Russian.
Steve: They’re not expecting to speak English.
