A Beautiful Gift From Russia!

Mrs. Yollis and her class are friends with Lyudmila and her class in the small town of  Kansk in Russia.
Today they received a special package from their blogging buddies!

Inside of the box were several lovely gifts! Chocolates, candies, a matryoshka, postcards, books, and a wonderful Russian flag!

Mrs. Yollis and her class feel so lucky to have such wonderful blogging friends!

Do you know any facts about Kansk, Russia?

How far away are they? 

What timezone are they in? Would we be able to Skype with them?


  1. Dear Mrs Yollis and students,

    How wonderful to receive a package from Russia.
    I loved all the special gifts you received from Russia with Love!

    It is really is amazing just how wonderful blogging is and the wonderful friendships which are formed. You sure do have some very special friends around the world.

    From your blogging pal,

  2. @ AA,

    Thank you for the fantastic comment. I know it was an outstanding package from Russia. The best part of the package was probably the chocolate. The gift we got was special because it was nice that they were thinking about my class.

    I also enjoy blogging and getting to know different people. Yes, we do like learning about people around the world.


    PS. Amitai and I are doing the Russian postcard.
