How to Spot a Russian...

tourists

Over the weekend, I was sitting at my apartment pool, relaxing in the hot sun when I was disturbed by very loud voices. Immediately I could tell that it was some of the Russian residents living in my building. For me, it's easy to spot Russians in the crowd, perhaps because I spend so much time communicating with them in my personal life and in this blog. They most often talk in a very loud tone, which sounds aggressive to my English trained ears. Why is this? This is not only at my apartment, but also a perception based on numerous personal encounters with Russians in the USA, on airplanes and throughout Russia. It's not an insult, just an observation. :) The topic of the conversation can be extremely friendly, with a loved one or friend, yet still sound like an argument to me because I barely understand any Russian words when they are spoken by natives.

Other signs that the person at my pool is Russian - older women almost always wear bikinis, despite their physical shape or appearance. Very old, overweight females stuff themselves into these types of bathing suits, and it's fine. About someone else's appearance, I have no opinion or say, and if they're comfortable in this type of clothing, more power to these ladies! :) However, it's not so common for old women in the States to wear bikinis, I very rarely see it. Similarly, Russian and European men at my pool almost always wear Speedos, or tightly constricted swimming trunks. It doesn't matter that they have huge bellies, I suppose it's just a cultural difference in swimwear attire. Something like this...Read more...Collapse )

USA with the number of fat people is in first place in the world. These citizens do not enjoy the beaches? ))

No, Mexico now occupies first place for fatness. Our beaches are very crowded. Book a plane ticket, and come see for yourself. Then you will realize there are many fit, healthy and attractive Americans also. Same was everywhere in the world. Fat, skinny, athletic, bony - diverse people and bodies. This is good. :)

"Of course, there are certain Slavic facial features in both men and women"

Ну это бред. Такого нет понятия "Slavic facial features". Русские на вид ничем не отличаются от европейца скандинавского типа с гаплотипом R1a, характеризующим округлое лицо с квадратным подбородком. Лично меня считают голландцем, а не русским. Им даже в голову не приходит. Они думают Путин - русский, хотя русского в нем ничего нет. А вот у R1b лицо треугольной формы с острым подбородком и чаще встречается у англичан, чем у шотландцев. А быдлован - не обязательно русский. Он может быть и мексиканцем и каким угодно.

You're saying that all people look the same? I disagree. People from certain regions of the world have different facial features, complexions, etc. Russians do not typically look anything like Americans with regard to bone or face structure.

The reason for bikini and speedos-sun light scarcity in Russia.After long gloomy winters people  will not want to cover up ones they get a chance to catch up with all this sun they have been missing. Sunlight and beach accually being perscribed in doctors offices,while in the States its the opposite.

I can spot an american girl  by flip-flops,flared jeans(outdated in Europe) bedheads, loose clothing and they almost never have straight bangs.

American guys -by flip flops, cool celtic tatoos,looser shirts and lower shorts.Beards and necklaces sometimes.

You're right, in the U.S, we dress very casual unless there's a special event. Most women aren't getting all dolled up to simply run errands or go out for a casual dinner. Completely different culture in this way. And, yes, we love flip flops in summer time. :))

Judgmental? In what way? I'm merely stating my observations.

Фантстика...Полная Фантастика...Прочитал и упал под стол..Хохотал долго.. Следующий раз не постесняюсь и обязательно сделаю фото "отдыхающих носителей европейский ценностей" особенно женщин в возрасте... Дряхлые тела не просто в бикини, а в мини- бикини... у некоторых обвисшая грудь не взирая на огромное количество силикона...

А вообще дело не в этом..Автору топика не стыдно?? Залезьте уже окончательно людям в трусы и возмущайтесь например что женщины не теми прокладками пользуются...

А определить любого иностранца в России - максимально легко...На раз...
