Life in North Mariana Island

Well I think I’ve found my place on earth…. a paradise in the pacific!

Landed on a pretty, unique and historical island in the Pacific, the Northern Mariana Islands belonging in the US territory. Currently, I am on a tiny island called Tinian, a place where the Legendary giant man named “Taga” lived. It played a major role during the World War II, the Northern Mariana Islands served as Japanese military base and developed Tinian Island into a developed town.

Life in Eastern Russia

This month’s issue provided a short article about a Russian folk ensemble from the Udmurtia Republic near the Ural Mountains. The group, called Бурановские Бабушки (Buranovskiye Grandmothers), sing covers of popular Russian and Western songs in their native Udmurt language, which is a language spoken by 500,000 people and belongs to the same language family as Finnish, Estonian, and Hungarian.

This is a great blog from the far east of Russia. It’s a must visit.
