Se here I am starting again learning Russian. I always had a soft spot for this language. I learnt my first words when travelling with my parents around Soviet Union, somewhere between 1985-1988. My first sentence/phrase that I practiced with an extreme dedication was Мороженое пожалуйста (Ice cream, please). My parents gave me some pocket money and the deal was that I had to ask for what I desired the most, in the local language. Therefore Russian. Therefore ice cream.
