+ Okroshka +

Well, today, I set a special lesson which students and I welcomed a guest who is officer of Ishikawa prefecture. Irkutsk and Kanazawa city, which in Ishikawa prefecture, are sister cities and the officer came to Irkutsk for studying Russian language as his job. Well, the lesson, actually it was like a culture exchange meeting, was very interesting. First the officer told about Ishikawa prefecture and then my students told him about Russian some things such as culture, geography or history. Actually they had prepared a lot and their presentations were very good. Well, a student started explanation how to cook Okroshka which is one of famous and traditional soup in Russia. It is said that the soup named after a Russian word which means to chop or break into small pieces. Then, the student showed us her bold view. According to her,

First of all, open your refrigerator.

Second, put every food from your refrigerator into a bowl.

Third, pour kvass. (Kvass is very popular drink in Russia.)

You got the Okroshka!

We couldn't help laughing and everyone applauded.

I thought that her explanation was awesome! For example, have you ever had a sort of feeling the strain when you have heard the word “Traditional”? Actually I have. However, this time, the student made me relax in front of the word. Of course it is important to face it very seriously. However, I think that some times such bold stand point is more important than a big head.

Well, when I came back to my room, of course, I opened my refrigerator first!

...there were only beers.
