My name is Susan and I graduated from Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania. I am spending the 2011-2012 academic year teaching English in Ulyanovsk Russia at the Ulyanovsk State Technical University as part of the Fulbright Program. This blog will chronicle my adventures in Russia. I plan to write about living in Russia, teaching in Russia, and exploring the world of Russian automobiles.

My interests include in no particular order: Mercedes-Benz automobiles (preferably pre-1995 and diesel), Tang Soo Do, Taekwondo (I break some boards with my head towards the end of this video), Russia, the Cold War, James Bond films, the writings of James Herriot, listening to music, eating, baking, zombie movies, video games (especially Goldeneye, Call of Duty, and Lucas Arts point and click adventures such as Zak McKraken and the Alien Mind Benders, the Monkey Island series, Maniac Mansion, and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis), playing guitar, and snowboarding.

  1. Hi Susan, my name is Andrew Cauchi and I am from Malta (South Europe). I’ve been coming and going to/from Ulyanovsk for the past 4 years since I own two companies there, and I see that we share the same passion for motors. In fact thats what I typically enjoy doing in Ulyanovsk, Soviet classics spotting. I also happen to know the ladies at SMART school. I really would like to get in touch with you so as to share some experiences cos its very unusual to find fellow westerners in that part of Eastern Europe. My e-Mail address is a_cauchi@yahoo.co.uk Best regards.
