You wanta know what is weird for me?

Everyday I am hearing about collusion to Russia, and Putin screwing with our election, yet... on the other hand, I have found myself in an interesting position, as I am tutoring two people who are Russian in English..

In my own home, I am tutoring two people who speak Russian in English.. We have many Slavic people in San Francisco, as well as people from all over the world... but the topic has been so much about Trump and Russia, and Trump meeting Putin in Private... and talk of Russian Spies and Bots every where , and right here, two people have helped me clean and fix up my place just for the opportunity to learn English...


What a strange world we live in...

1. Good for you yui. Governments may be bad, but most people,

of any background are basically good.
Do you teach them to blow smoke rings as well?
Glad to see you posting more often again--you are needed here.

2. I haven't asked them if they Smoke weed...

I have plenty of weed but one pipe... I guess we could do the "Peace pipe" thing...that might be fun, but than one has to drive home, so driving impaired is not a good thing. If they were walking, than maybe.

9. Here's the link.

Although maybe I shouldn't have said anything because I don't want to scare you or otherwise make you unnecessarily suspicious of your new friends who very likely aren't spies.

Rachel tells quite an involved, 30-minute story about these Russian spies who went through years of training including Harvard degrees and were monitored by Strzok and the FBI for years. I found it interesting.

10. well, there is this....

Their english is not so good, so how much can they understand to report back to the KGB? They are presently learning English from an Asian girl who suspects nothing, perhaps they will spy for Russia once they understand what is going on, but until then they have to learn english to function in this country.

And if they already speak English well enough, than is my teaching them providing them a cover? One must also suspect that the FBI is aware of all Russian citizens in the US... or maybe Trump doesn't want the FBI to do that..i don't know.. who knows... until someone tells me to stop, I will teach them English.
