My name is Daria, I'm 26 and I live in Moscow, Russia. I've majored in oriental studies (Arabic language and literature) and just love oriental culture and art.
Things I also enjoy:
- vintage posters and book covers;
- children's book illustrations - I have a HUUUGE collection of children's books. If you know about a good children's book illustrator in your country, please tell me about them! It'll be much appreciated;
- video games;
- Grumpy Cat and Pusheen;
- Pikachu and Pokémon in general;
- ALL birds and animals but especially opossums, mooses and capybaras;
- handmade cards (no cards made out of packaging, please);
- cute dogs and puppies! ❤️❤️❤️ A card with a picture of a rough collie would make my day! They are my favorite, but I love all dogs so, so much.
If you have a picture of your dog printed postcard-style (on good sturdy card paper that will survive the long trip), feel free to send it to me!
I've only recently started learning how to cook, so maybe you could send me a recipe you particularly like? Or at least write down a link to a recipe online? I will try to cook it — if the ingredients are not TOO rare :) (You can find pretty much anything in Moscow, though.) I prefer savoury dishes (meaning: not desserts) and try not to eat too much meat.
That's a new challenge I have just invented for myself, hope to hold by it!
