Natalia Tarasenko, 7. Mistakes JULY

he gets interested in meeting new people

I'm so thrilled to be here tonight

a suicide bomber

I have heat and sore throat

It was more of a vacation

I haven't seen them since last year

I even tried to swim in the sea

Yeah, I can relate to that

I might call you on Sunday

there must be something you've forgotten

there must be something you like to eat

The rest of the time I was staying in the Odessa region

mostly by the sea

I get disappointed every time I'm there

I mean the fertility of the soil

What does “fertility” mean?

it can be used for harvesting anyway

early raspberry harvest

In fact, I prefer wild cherry

Honestly, there is not much to write home about

Majority of my classmates are sailors who settled down in Odessa

most of them purchased apartments in Odessa

As far as I know, there are almost no young people left

The locals are prone to a hedonistic approach to life

the vast majority of women are housewives

they are busy with nothing but bringing up they children

husbands, for their part, go sailing

My cousin went sailing when he turned 17

In fact, it's pretty well-paid

paychecks exceed those in an IT field

you can find yourself facing a tough situation

There was such a case

Philippines

from other countries

people of a totally different mentality

His family was told he had jumped off a ship to the open ocean

You are surrounded with complete strangers

According to him, the main issue sailors struggle with is boredom

that is, they are bored

hard physical workload

a cook must be over fifty

I am not sure if I'm right

Apart from that, women are not allowed on a ship

I'm not talking about cruise ships -  it's a whole different story

I refer to cargo ships

I see buildings crumbling down

That's so frustrating

and it's getting even worse year by year

the local mayor is not a honorable man, to put it mildly

He is maintaining our city in good condition

that's his only advantage

unlike, stinky Odessa

the city is overwhelmed by the growing number of tourists

The city authorities didn't even lift one finger

no improvements have been introduced in years

except for price rise

On the other hand, Odessa is notoriously famous

The locals are resistant towards Ukrainian unity

definitely, not as much as Western Ukraine

Well, they can be far more aggressive

if something goes not the way they want it to be

We came across a car accident on the road

Surprisingly enough, the drivers didn't yell at each other

they were totally cool

He said, it would've been a whole different story if it had happened in Kharkiv

it can be both an advantage and a disadvantage

I have some Moldavian roots

Romanian houses can be seen right across Danube

yeah, we do have such spots in the town

there isn't any border

However, if one wants to cross the river

Romanians won't allow him or her to enter

there is a renovation going on

Even though, my grandma was originally for Chisinau

But not us

Food traditions are somewhat different

She would cook some traditional Moldavian dishes

A TV channel in Romanian

I switch channels

there are some villages

an ethnic minority

They speak their native language

They have problems with hygiene

That'S why we don't like them

he gets easily irritated
