Hey! I'm an open-minded, friendly, easy-going, responsible and tidy person. I love to have people around myself.
I've just finished my studies in Germany (Trier) in German philology. My Master thesis was about the Slavic influence on the Yiddish language. I really love this language and would love to find a job in this sphere.
On my free time I like to do yoga and meditation, meet with my friends, learn Yiddish and Swedish, play khomus (jew's harp), paint with acrylic, read books (biography, history, novel, fairy tales). I love to listen to the ethnic/folk rock music.
I'm looking forward to meet you :D

Teach, Learn, Share
Languages I speak, maybe some recepies of cooking, playing the jew's harp etc. and, of course, conversations.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Culture. The culture of my folk, Yakuts (Sakha) is unique. We are the indegenous people in the North-Eastern part of Siberia. We saved our oldest religion, shamanism, that almost all the people over the world had, before they christianized, islamized etc.
