A community Identified with a Particular Place????
Hello. I’m Marina Borodina. I’m so glad to participate in this videoconference. I want to present you the project called “Culture dialogue” for your consideration. I did it in the form of the express test that I’m suggesting YOU now!
I have been living in Khabarovosk for not so long time and it’s not my native city, but now I associate myself with it. Some places mean more than much for me, some I take no care of.
Look at this pictures illustrating places of interest of Khabarovsk and tell me please what pictures you would choose if you visit Khabarovsk for the first time and why, what associations you would have with them?
|Restaurant of Russian traditional food|| Russian Orthodox Church|
Parks and Squares
I did the same activity with my Chinese Friend Guan Ke (her Russian name is Julia) and compared results. The ideas happened to be on the surface but the reasons differed.
First, I would visit the restaurant to try new food and meet new people. Then go churches, historic landmarks to breeze the atmosphere of the city, see the history and how citizens feel about their own city. Night views of the city will take the third place, because night life differs greatly from the daytime in terms of light, people and rush they produce.
And my friend Yulia would like to visit the restaurant or cafe first (our choices coincided) to try traditional food, secondly, she would like to visit the theatre to compare two cultures and styles, and the last place is the fountain to see daily life of the citizens.
