Freedom of communication
Hello to everyone! My name is Xenia and I’m student of Khabarovsk Academy of economics and law. I major in international management. I thought a lot about what to write and finally the inspiration came:) I haven’t traveled so much, I have visited Japan and China. It is so easy to meet people there. They show a great interest in foreigners and don’t feel confused to start talking. For example, there in Japan I woke up early morning and ran to the sea, every Japanese I met greeted me and bowed, then on the beach girls and guys didn’t feel any difficulties in asking “Hi! Where are you from? What is your name?” and just stay and chat:)
Here in Russia situation is not the same. We have some kind of barrier to start communication with a stranger, but after this barrier is overcome we can discuss any theme you offer:) Beginning from our childhood we were taught not to talk with a strangers, because they could hurt us. Our country went through severe global wars and it affected our perception. We used to protect ourselves by creating barriers around, but when someone wakes up our trust we open our hearts and ready to listen and to help.
If you look attentively you can find great friend, open-hearted and cheerful person in every Russian. Now we hide strongest sides of our nature, but time flies and the stereotype about morose Russians will be damaged soon:)
