I live in Seattle and work as a business consultant. I have been learning Russian for about a year. I visited Estonia and St Petersburg, Russia last October. I hope to visit Russia and the Ukraine later this year. I have many interests: travel, photography and history. If anyone would like to link up as friends to help each other practice: I am Alan Martiny (Facebook), Alan Martiny id160148926 (VK) and alan.martiny (Skype). Nice to meet you!
