Nadezhda's Journey to Russia

Current Location

Omsk, Russia

Hello! My name is Nadia and I am a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant at a university in Omsk, Russia. I am really excited to share my love of language and culture with you all!


My first week in Omsk has been spent finding new restaurants, trying new things and making new friends. I am really enjoying getting to know my new home!

Field Notes

As in the United States, pancakes are one of the traditional comfort foods in Russia. However, the Russian style, called blini, look more like French crêpes and come in a variety of styles.


I ride a bus or a marshrutka to the gym almost every day. My trip always reminds me how beautiful Omsk is. This bridge crosses the Irtysh River. Did you see the houses close to the river?
