About Me


chop my own wood, so it will warm me twice


Vegan, runner, urban gardener, sartor and booklover.

I had lived all my life in the cool city of Moscow until the summer 3 years ago, when I came to Israel for a couple of months. Just before I had to leave, I changed my ticket to stay longer, but eventually didn't use it at all.
