My Life in Tomsk by Nguen Txi Chanh Van
This is my first visit to Russia from Vietnam. This is the first time I had to do everything myself and live away from my parents. It was very difficult. I felt very lonely and my instructors became my friends. They are very kind and helpful. They taught me how to study, where to walk, when to sleep and how to eat better in Russia. One day I felt sick and lonely. I missed my Dad and Mom tremendously, but my instructor visited me frequently and helped me in every way. He has become my Dad and Mom in a way. Thanks to him, I felt at home in Russia and I loved this country very much.
