吉林体彩十一选五 www.6yyxf.com Legends say that under a thick layer of Russian snow live severe people that never smile, make friends with bears, and wear heavy fur coats. Well, legends are never true, though they might sound interesting. The reality in these cold lands is much more interesting and involves bathing in ice-holes, making snowmen on highways, and going to the navy with your cat while drinking cucumber-flavored Sprite!

Russia is the land of astonishing nature.
