I lived in Tartu, Estonia and Riga, Latvia for 10 years combined
English, Russian as well as some Estonian and a tiny bit of Latvian
I volunteer teach English as a second language, I love bicycling, reading and checking out new bars and restaurants. I also enjoy traveling to Virginia to spend time with family (and breathing country air) at least a few times a month.
I'd love to go up to the Northeast and check out Russian restaurants and bars. I'd also like to go to concerts and other cultural events. Mostly, I'd like to speak Russian (and be exposed to Russian language and culture) as much as much as possible.
I'd prefer Center City, Philadelphia as I don't have a car. But I'll go retty much anywhere I can take SEPTA or ride my bike:)
Hi! My name is Jessica Morrison. I'm 29 years old and, though I'm American, I spent most of my childhood in Estonia and Latvia, living in Russian neighborhoods. I also minored in Russian at college (at Temple University).
