Kuznetsova Maria Alexandrovna


Some women are more heroines than others...


The Eighth of March, early morning. The Russkaya calls at my mobile while I'm crossing the Calle Goya on my way to the State Solicitor's Office. She wants to make sure I'm aware of the date. Kanieshno! (Of course!). The Women's Day is one of the biggest holidays in ex-next Soviet Russia. All men there, all with guilty conscience once a year for the way they don't care in the remaining 364 days, are rushing to buy flowers to their significant dievushkas. What better "flower" than a public worldwidewebby homage to a woman who has been enduring a not too easy non-Russian male?

Of course, it is very pleasant to see that my name took the respectful place in the row of extremely respectful people: Albert Einstein, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Arturo Perez-Reverte - the heroes of your blog.
Thank you!)
P.S. There is only one thing that worries me. If you remembered that date so well why you keep saying 8th of May, if it is 8th of March?)))
