    I'm quite certain that even though this gentleman could not speak German or English, the feeling of being able to assist you in some small way was still rewarding for him. My darling John-Charles and I found that the "universal smile" helped to go a long way when it came to trying to express our needs. There's always a way to communicate--even though it may not be elaborate or fancy. On my first two overseas travels, I went alone; and I only speak English. I was about 29 years of age; and had no fear of the world or the unknown. In today's world, however, things are so much different. Nonetheless, I'm glad I had the sense of adventure within me for I got to see parts of the world I would never have known about. My sister and brother do not share my sense of wanting to know anything and everything about as much of the world as I possibly can learn. My two beautiful husbands spoke five and seven languages fluently; so in latter years, it did come in handy quite often.

    How local people reacted to your exotic couch?

      The local people were all friendly, interested and helpfully. Children and young people wanted to sit test on the couch :-))
      When I had no more patches to repair my flat tire, the man on the photo took a defective tube with home and fixed it there!!!
      I got help, although we could not communicate with words. I speak no Russian and the man spoke neither in German nor in English.
