Yesterday I went to Russian sauna. I forgot my slippers and asked a woman in a massage salon inside the sauna, if she had a pair to borrow. She said she has, but only for her clients. "Did you come to my salon before?" - she asked. "Yes. About a year ago" - (it was true, but maybe 2 years past since I went there last time) She looked at me like she didn't believe me. "I live in America, " -I said - "I come visit Obninsk not very often." When she heard "America" her face changed and right away she gave me great pair of slippers. I was glad: Not all world hates America this days!
