Matryoshka
















I kept thinking for a few minutes to write something that's gonna be worthwhile. I started like this and... I got stuck. Then I decided to explain to you the reason I'm wearing a scarf instead of a skirt and what is it with the russian dolls. It's a complex and complicated thing, so I'll try to simplify, if not for a different reason, at least because I already started to think how the hell I'm going to translate to English all the nonsense I so easily write down in Romanian.
The summer season is over. You might not know, but I'm a receptionist at a hotel where 90% of tourists are Russians. I speak their language and they bring me all kinds of small gifts: sweets (an enormous amount of chocolate), matryoshka dolls, magnets that I used to decorate my fridge, ahhh and one of the most unusual gift: a salami! No fancy bag, no presentation suggestion. Bulk!... straight on the desk. You simply can't imagine the joy in my eyes!...
The nice part of my job is that I meet a lot of beautiful people. Some became my friends, others I'm glad to see again, whenever they come back to the hotel. Today I'm wearing traditional Russian scarfs brought to me as a present by two wonderful people: Ruslan and Olga. I kept thinking about this post as an ode to my tourists and, even more, to rejoice for an ended season. I really needed a break ;)

Ma tot gandesc de cateva minute sa va scriu ceva sa va merite osteneala. Am inceput asa si m-am blocat...Apoi m-am hotarat sa va explic de ce port o esarfa in loc de fusta si ce e cu papusile rusesti.
E o chestie complexa si complicata, asa ca o sa incerc sa simplific, nu de alta, dar deja ma gandesc cum naiba traduc eu in engleza toate prostiile care se astern natural in romaneste.
S-a terminat sezonul de vara. Voi nu stiti, sunt receptionista la un hotel unde 90% din turisti sunt rusi. Eu le vorbesc in limba lor iar ei imi aduc tot felul de mici cadouri: dulciuri (enorm de multa ciocolata), papusile matryoshka, magneti cu care mi-am impodobit eu frigiderul, aaaa si cel mai inedit cadou...un baton de salam! Fara vreo punga fancy, fara sugestie de prezentare. Vrac!...direct pe receptie. Nu va puteti imagina bucuria din ochii mei!...
Partea frumoasa a jobului meu este ca am cunoscut o multime de oameni frumosi. Unii mi-au ramas prieteni, pe altii ma bucur sa-i vad ori de cate ori revin in hotelul unde lucrez. 
Astazi port esarfe traditionale rusesti aduse cadou de doi oameni minunati, Ruslan si Olga.
M-am gandit la acest post ca la o oda turistilor mei dar si mai mult e asa de bucurie. Aveam nevoie de o pauza ;).

I'm wearing:
Scarfs: Platki
Boho Boots: Dahir
Blouse: Vintage
Belt: London Clothing
Necklace: H&M.


Show some love <3 :)
