“I miss Russia, especially birches. Me and my brother liked going to the wood for mushrooms and berries. Here in the USA there is no Russian banya, where you can drink vodka and then dive naked into the ice-hole. I try to visit my home country at least once a year. I have a huge family, and I just need to see them all. I want my future children to grow up in Russia and learn how life looks outside the United States.”
