• What do foreigners too long living in Russia
When foreigners come to Russia, they are unlikely to guess about how life here is different from that of Western countries. Here and mentality, and kitchen, and the habits and traditions of others.

They begin to notice some signs of a "Russification".

Getting used to the huge number of papers and documents. In Russia still valid library card index paper, insurance policies and medical records in a thick notebook. And all this is carried out manually.
The habit of dressing up and take care of their appearance. Russian dress to impress. Foreigners after a time, do not want to look at the gray background of Russian. And yes, the mini-skirt in the winter - is the norm.

Eating jam and condensed milk spoons (rather than smearing knife thinly on bread or biscuits).
Buying an odd number of flowers. An odd number - for living, even - to the deceased.
The indifference to the sullen people in the street. At heart, the foreigners in love with Russia, well aware that the Russian - friendly and good, just do not like to smile to anybody.
The rudeness of others is no longer so hurt. The more so because it is not rude, and especially phonetics of the Russian language, because of which many foreigners seem that Russian all the time cursing.
