24/02/2022 I'm deeply shocked by the awful events happening now. My heart aches so much with its cruelty and injustice.
24/05/2022 Just for the note: now in Russia hundreds of people are prosecuted for any pacifist posts on social media or picketing as it's considered 'the discredit of the army'. The same goes for posting any information which contradicts the official statements of the authorities as it's considered 'fakes'.
I'm Lena and I live in Moscow, Russia. I'm 24 years old. Lasy year I got my master's degree and now I work as a lawyer for an IT company.
I love travelling! It brings me so much inspiration as I love to experience something new. It's so exciting to learn the history of places and famous people, find out about local traditions, culture, lifestyles, try new food and different activities.
Since last winter I started baking as a hobby. Every weekend I try to make some cookies, pies or cakes. I also like to cook other dishes and try out new recipes.
My other hobby is reading. I really like historical novels, fantasies (Harry Potter), thrillers (J. Grisham, D. Brown), distopias (like 1984, Hunger Games).
I love going to museums, history and art exhibitions. I like classical art more (esp. Renaissance) but also enjoy surrealism. Before the pandemic, I tried to go to opera and ballet or drama theater once a month. I miss it so much now!
I also like doing some crafty things such as collect puzzles, stitch cross, paint by numbers.
I'm not a sport person although I try to exercise daily. Although I love watching tennis, figure skating, biathlon. My dream is to visit one of the Grand Slams tennis tournaments and some sports cars' shows.
My favourite music bands and singers are Ed Sheeran, Enrique Iglesias, Imagine Dragons. I follow Marvel movies (my fav hero (or antihero, haha) is Loki), love the Pirates of the Caribbean, Fast&Furious series.
I'm always open to swap cards and pen-pals :)

I love to read your messages. You can tell me about the picture on the card, something interesting about your country, how your day was, your favourite food, etc. Maybe you could give me a book|movie recommendation, share the recipe or write the quote that inspires you?
