This year we continue our Tuesday’s cultural meetings “Kapustnik stran” where the international students present their native countries and share the secrets of their culture and traditions. The 2016 opens with the Ukrainian evening, then the baton passed to our Korean students with their mysterious motherland.
Two students from Johannes Kepler University, Strahinja and Stefan Lazić, presented information about their country at the most recent meeting of the International Club. The brothers spoke about the things that make Austrians proud, things they don’t like and what they aspire to. The presentation aroused great interest among the students.
Alessandra Marabini and Francesca Di Furia are Italian exchange students living in Nizhny Novgorod. They are from University of Bergamo and have come to HSE on an exchange semester to study Economics and Russian Language. Both of them have been to Russia before so they are not fazed by the unfamiliar things they see going on around them. Nevertheless, as they tell us below, something new and surprising seems to happen to them everyday. The things that struck them most during their month in Nizhny Novgorod are public transport and the old houses.
