There is so much to read, and only so much time. I have subscribed to RL for about a decade. I was going to let my subscription lapse, but I'm glad I didn't. I read the last issue cover to cover, watched "Diamond Arm" twice, baked Charlotte twice. My relationship with Russia is complex. Half my family lives there, and I am disgusted with the current regime - why can't I simply send presents to my grandchildren through the mail? Yes, the bridges in Vladivostok are beautiful, but I wish the money had been spent on roads in my kids' home town - driving is a bloody nightmare. Russian hospitality is legendary - and rightly so - but there is always someone waiting around the corner for the chance to remind me, "Кримь наш!". I value what I have learned from the pages of RL - the journalism is the finest I could hope for.

I really enjoyed Russian Life and hope to continue reading.

I have no family connection with Russia, but I have visited several times and I love Russian art, music and writing of the Romantic period. I have even learned to appreciate Soviet art as a lesson in Russian history. The magazine, Russian Life, covers all of these areas of my interest plus more. The photographs are outstanding. Reading this magazine is almost as good as being there.

As a Russian teacher for over 30 years I have the highest regard for Russian Life magazine. Its mix of culture,history, geography and current affairs is always stimulating and informative and the magazine's arrival on the doorstep is a monthly highlight!
