So, as I said before, I am completely out numbered on the male to female volunteer ratio in my village. Today I went out with four of the guys to grab a drink before going home. We started talking to the table next to us, two older gentleman. One spoke pretty good English, and is a retired teacher.
About 10 minutes into the comversation, they all decided to do a shot of vodka. Now shots scare me, I am no good at taking them, and refuse most times. The idea of a vodka shot in a country so close to Russia really scared me, luckily they took my refusal very well, and told me “the princess” could get whatever she wanted. I decided on a tea. They brought out the shots and my tea, and for the next 30 or so minutes continued to call me princess. Before we left they gave the other volunteer their numbers incase we needed anything. It was rather flattering, I just wish I had gotten a picture.
Have a great night, and a happy 4th of July in the states!
