I came to Kazan, a thirteen hour train ride from Moscow, expecting to run into not only a lot less foreigners, but English speakers especially. Through Couch Surfing, I had a pleasant surprise, when I stumbled across this fantastic couple to stay with. She from Moscow and he from Glasglow. Who would have thought. On our first night, they were fantastic enough to have a little gathering of sorts with other couch surfers and those they were hosting in the area. We went out to this little bar for some food and good times with the wonderful little community here. No other way to get welcomed into an area by a bar who's favorite thing to do is catch everything on fire from drinks to food and bring it to you in flames.
