christmas-angelLooking for a chance to integrate with the locals while making a cute little souvenir to take home?

Consider signing up for a workshop where you’ll learn to make something neat, and have fun and make friends in the process, such as making Chrismtas angel dolls on Jan. 5 at the Pomor Culture Center in Belomorsk, Karelia, at Ul. Oktyabrskaya 5-a, tel. 8 921 458 0383.

I must say that the fashion for these workshops is on the rise here, and those wishing to get close to make contact with the locals should consider participating.

This advice particularly applies to Russian bride seekers.
