The architecture of St. Petersburg and the beauty of the ancient cities of the Golden Ring amazed Morgan Lynch, a teacher of Russian from the United States, on a trip to Russia. He told about this in an interview with his former teacher of the Russian language Maria Petrova, NewInform reports.

Morgan Lynch admitted that a trip to Russia made him love the country. The American said that he was struck by St. Petersburg, Vladivostok and ancient Russian cities, as well as Russian nature.

But most of all he remembered his meetings with people, about communication with Russians, Morgan said: "It's better than seeing Baikal." According to the American, a trip to Russia taught him that when traveling, you must first of all pay attention to the people around you.

The trip allowed Morgan to be convinced of the falsity of the stereotypes that have developed about Russia in Western countries. For example, he learned that Russians are not cold people at all. The stereotype about the total addiction of the country's inhabitants to alcohol was not confirmed. But the American learned that Russians are very fond of tea.

“Sometimes I wandered about a huge park in the center of New York and, looking at the skyscrapers that bordered it, thought with cold fury about wonderful American orchestras that didn’t care about my music…” Sergei Prokofiev wrote in 1918, immediately after emigration. The audience listening to The Love for Three Oranges, his opera, would never think that the composer of this brilliant sunny music could speak that bitterly about the country where he had his first real success. And that 18 years later, he would finally return to his homeland to see new openings for both life and creativity.
