Historical Russia:
The Best Trip For all the Wrong Reasons
By: Almo Elhillo
We traveled from scorching heat to freezing ice To a giant iceberg where women look nice Many warm eskimo hats were sold Due to the snow and blistering cold The late night ringing of phones Led to frequent teacher groans We went to beautiful palaces For famous paintings on canvasses Our group of kids were not subtle As everything led to big trouble Vodka is all that they drink Pretty damn cool, don’t you think? Poem
We traveled from scorching heat to freezing ice
To a giant iceberg where women look nice

Many warm eskimo hats were sold
Due to the snow and blistering cold

The late night ringing of phones
Led to frequent teacher groans

We went to beautiful palaces
For famous paintings on canvasses

Our group of kids were not subtle
As everything led to big trouble

Vodka is all that they drink
Pretty damn cool, don't you think?
RUSSIA! -Eastern European Country
-Ruled by Dmitry Medvedev
-Famous for it's ballets, freezing weather, and vodka In the Top 3 coldest countries in the world: more area above arctic circle
than any other country "We are in the Russian Airport now,
people are walking around holding bottles
of vodka. Awsomne." "We went to museums today,
it was ridiculously boring." The average Russian consumes almost
3 times as much alcohol as they did 15 years ago. "We had to walk around in a market today.
I've never been so cold in my life. I can't
feel my face, arms, or legs."

The average Russian drinks 18 litres (38 pints) of pure alcohol each year. Russian Hermitage
