Where do Russians normally travel to on holiday? Is it normal to vacation in other Russian cities? What cities would be the most popular in that regard?

Do you think of yourself as European -- even though you live, geographically, in Asia?

I live in the European part of Russia, but I don't feel myself as European, because European life and politics seem too far from me.

If the police officer noticed excess by a radar, it stops the driver, and the penalty about $10 is formed. Penalty pay not to the police officer, and in cash desk. To avoid bribes. Bribes police officers take for large violation because of which the driver can lose the rights. But it is very rare. ------ If I didn't answer your question, set to me it a little on another, my translator not absolutely precisely translated your question

How come Russsia and Canada do not have a better trade Relationship since we both share the same love of Hockey and both have huge Countries (by Landmass and Resources not population) and are used to colder climates?

I find it weird we do not get along better than we do...What do Russians think of Canada and Canadians?

In the summer Russians prefer Sochi - the Black Sea, or abroad, Thailand is especially popular. The prices are identical that to go to Sochi that to Thailand. In Russia to have a rest only in Sochi is a resort. There the Black Sea is warm also. In the winter it is possible to go to Sheregesh - the winter resort, to go skiing from mountains.

Go, but not all. The camera is called - the video recorder. By means of such cameras, it is easier to investigate violations on the road, or accident. Sometimes you won't prove who it is right and who is guilty, and the camera helps with such cases
