Novosibirsk, Russia - 25th December 2007

By: Oksana

Merry Christmas to everyone!
Hello! Today I've finally come to Russia, Novosibirsk. It's so-o cold here- the day temperature is -20'C now. I'm not used to such frost :(
http://i050.radikal.ru/0712/e1/2c8b4f1153cb.jpg
When my new host Oksana brought me home, I met Minerva there. We have become good friends here- she is also from Miami.
When I had some rest from my long voyage, Oksana took me to her office. Here I'm on her desk with the flowers:

And here I imagine that I'm a Christmas decoration on the Christmas tree :)

Novosibirsk, Russia - 29th December 2007

By: Oksana

Today my host has taken me and my new friends Minerva and blue Rat for a walk. I could play in snow for the first time!
It was great!!!
http://i035.radikal.ru/0712/dd/552a917ea8c4.jpg
http://i007.radikal.ru/0712/85/530e450adc9a.jpg

Then we were playing in the children's playground where we found many snow sculptures.
Here I'm with Russian Father Frost (like our Santa Clause)
http://i007.radikal.ru/0712/06/48911820a7ec.jpg
And here we are with Father's Frost grand-daughter Snegurochka:

http://i020.radikal.ru/0712/b7/dcd7c78b08de.jpg

We played there for a long time and we felt tired and frozen a bit. So our host took us to the cinema house where we watched "National Treasure 2" - we liked it very much! And we made this photo in the cinema:
http://i021.radikal.ru/0712/29/3e1f7bbfe200.jpg

We had a very nice day! And tomorrow we will help our host to clean her flat and decorate the Christmas tree.

By: Oksana

Today is New Year's Eve!
Today we've helped our host Oksana to clean the flat and cook some very tasty dishes. Here Minerva and me are cooking the salad.
http://i050.radikal.ru/0801/ab/070ebd3020c2.jpg
When everything was ready we sat down under the Christmas tree and were eating tangerines. They are very tasty- I've never eaten them before, but now I love this fruit very much!
Oksana told us that Russians love eating tangerines on New Year Day.

Novosibirsk, Russia - 1st January 2008

By: Oksana

Today we woke up at 10 a.m. We had a very tasty breakfast and Oksana took us to the Central park to see the main Christmas tree of Novosibirsk. It was about-10'C and it was snowing heavily! The streets were all in snow and there was almost no cars and people there.
http://i026.radikal.ru/0801/c7/c22e1a8270e8.jpg

http://i022.radikal.ru/0801/35/2d2f9627a3d4.jpg
We liked walking in the Central park- we could see there the very big Christmas tree and many scultputures made of white snow.

Today Oksana has taken me and Minerva to the embankment where we could play in the ice town. It  was great there!
We went to that ice town by the subway. It took us about 10-15 minutes to get there.

Novosibirsk, Russia - 4th January 2008

By: Oksana

Today Oksana has taken me and Minerva to the Christmas exhibition where we could see lots of Christmas trees and different decorations:

Novosibirsk, Russia - 7th January 2008

By: Oksana

Merry Russian Christmas! Do you know that Russian have their Christmas not on Dec. 25, but on Jan.7? It's because Russian belong to Orthdox church.
Today Oksana  has taken me and Minerva to the cafe. She has there a meeting with her friends. She and her friends make teddybears and other toys.
http://i003.radikal.ru/0801/c4/ff59ace387b4.jpg

http://i004.radikal.ru/0801/d4/4161956c8b62.jpg
As you can see we met there many new friends. We were chatting and drinking capuchino with sweets :)
http://i049.radikal.ru/0801/b4/e02f22b024f6.jpg

After that  Oksana took us to the Russian church.
We could hear the real bell there and church singing.
http://i042.radikal.ru/0801/00/e5d5e2872aba.jpg

Then we went to the mall. We went shopping there and then had a lunch in a cafe.
And there was a skating rink!
http://i047.radikal.ru/0801/f6/4e0ec90f7089.jpg

By the way we found there a very interesting shop with teddybears and clothes for them- A Build A Bear Workshop.
I liked it very much!!

Novosibirsk, Russia - 19th January 2008

By: Oksana

Today is a great Christian holiday in Russia-Epiphany- the day of the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River by John the Baptist.
We've decided to go for a walk today. At first Oksana took me and Minerva to the central park- there was the festival of snow sculpture. People from many other Russian cities and former Soviet republics took part in that festival. Most of all I liked the sculpture of a camel and a dove with a town.

http://i014.radikal.ru/0801/5f/d9b003dc5995.jpg

Here is the Novosibirsk concert hall- it's called The House Of Lenin.
http://i010.radikal.ru/0801/74/8b09c2cc6af8.jpg

And here it is the monument of 2 storks- the symbol of a new family. Newly- weds often come here to make photos with these storks.
http://i047.radikal.ru/0801/47/8f7afe320266.jpg

And here is the Chapel of Alexander Nevskij (May 30, 1220? November 14, 1263) - the national Russian hero. He was the Grand Prince of Novgorod and Vladimir during some of the most trying times in the country's history. Commonly regarded as the key figure of medieval Russia, Alexander was the grandson of Vsevolod the Big Nest and rose to legendary status on account of his military victories over the German invaders while employing shrewd conciliatory policies towards the powerful Golden Horde.
http://i030.radikal.ru/0801/d5/53dc6bcde8a1.jpg

We also found some old Russian wooden houses- Oksana thinks that they were build in the begining of the 20th century... They look really very beautiful and unusual near modern buildings...
http://i034.radikal.ru/0801/41/e61b75b84c10.jpg

Then we went to the dolls exhibition, but Oksana mixed the dates, so it turned out that the exhibition was not opened yet. Luckily Oksana met there a friend of her who invited us to come in and see the dolls before the exhibition would be opened.  That was very nice! All the dolls were made by Novosibirsk  authors.

http://i012.radikal.ru/0801/79/f7d033e941d5.jpg

Then we went to the Voznesensky Cathedral. You know because the Epiphany all Russian churches were overcrowded. People came there to attent the church service and to take some holly water home.

Novosibirsk, Russia - 20th January 2008

By: Oksana

Today is my last day in Novosibirsk with Oksana and Minerva.
We wake up very early and Oksana baked the apple pie. We had our breakfast- the apple pie turned to be very tasty!
http://i010.radikal.ru/0801/b0/d9861420b7d6.jpg

Then I could spend some time with Minerva and Oksana's toys. We were reading the magazine and chatting. We all felt a bit sad, because we didn't want to part :(
http://i019.radikal.ru/0801/b3/258d0904ae42.jpg

http://i030.radikal.ru/0801/fa/88a81e453d90.jpg

And some time later Oksana took me to the post office and I'm now on my way to Moscow- the capital of Russia where my new host Kristl lives.
Good bye Oksana, Minerva and my other friends! I really had much fun in Novosibirsk and enjoyed living here!

By: kristl

Today we went to the post office to see if Minerva has arrived. I was worried cause we've already met with her in Novosibirsk at Oksana's home, and she was sent here a couple of days later than me. But I was already here and she - not.

You can imagine how happy we were when Minerva came out of the box!!! Kristl said that she was sent somewhere wrong and that's why she arrived so late. I hope she is not very tired after the trip.

Moscow, Russia - 20th February 2008

By: kristl

Today we went for a visit to another flat where Kristl had some business to do. She said that we won't be bored cause there're many other toys there that we would be glad to meet.

She was absolutely right!!

She told us about a very old dog called S'ema that lives in a big armchair. She suggeste us to visit him cause he can tell us many interesting stories. And so did we. All the TV-bears decided to visit S'ema.

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4397566_8127e0f11a.jpg?r=360

We took some sweets to give him.

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4397567_c6e52cd6be.jpg?r=360

We came to S'ema one by one introducing ourselves and asking him to tell us something interesting. He was very happy that we visited him, he said that it's quite boring to sit all days there on the armchair, though he has his best friend with him.

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4397573_094674a98b.jpg?r=360

Then we all sat aroun him and listened many wonderful stories and fairy-tales!! That was a perfect day! I hope to visit S'ema once more and tell him about my adventures as a ToyVoyager.
