Thanks for the tips! And I liked your interpretation of my name "Оьхаna"... very interesting variant btw, how would you pronounce it in Russian, I wonder :-)

And this one sounds very promising ... :-)

Thanks for enlightening, but I'm not English that's why I prefer Chekhov's variant rather than Shakespeare's :)

and I guess small deviations from the main topic aren't against the rules :)

Dear, robertmf

You're the greatest contributor to my thread, thanks for keeping it going on, and also for enlarging my knowledge by wikipedia links, seriously, it's interesting stuff :)

As for my name, it's a Ukrainian one, Russian variant is Kseniya



:wavey: Мне нравиться Охана, а не :yuk: окра


Thank you!..... but if I should check Rule #2, then you definitely should read one more time Rule #29 (http://www.expat.ru/forum/rules.php)

Best regards :)

How do you get Ксения from Охана :question:

#29 is a bit loose, similar to copyright law allows a sentence or paragraph to be reproduced. You'll see bits & pieces of various languages here :mml:

So when you are in Moscow, you are Oxana - and when you ride the Kiev funicular, you are Kseniya !

P.S. Are you a blonde :question:

Haha! sort of, but it's faaaar from being Siberia, if you have a look at this "M23" - it's a highway that runs along the Black Sea coast, connecting the cities of Rostov-on-Don and Taganrog... just FYI :10220:
