About Me

Russian-Israeli who lives in Kathmandu, Nepal. Married to Krishna (missionhimalaya).
Now we are in Russia after being evacuated from Nepal by Russian Ministry of Emergency with our 1.2 years old doughtier. I'm planning to spend this summer in Russia and then to travel back to Nepal.

I lived in Russia, Israel and then moved to Jordan but found myself in Nepal. I'm a political and social activist and feminist, trying to balance peaceful life in Kathmandu with thoughts about resistance and world-changing.

PHILOSOPHY: Never to say never
