I remember, it was shocking to me that the girl would talk like this. I would say it was a bad manner to do so, but the two Russian ladies were a little tipsy from Champaign served at the socials. I just kept watching the scene. The two men approached the ladies. "Yes, yes of course", said the friend of the shy guy. He was rather tall, and blond, and apparently used to the fact that girls tended to like him. He felt just fine meeting strangers. The blonde spoke English very well, so she and the blonde guy went on and on joking and laughing and finally suggested to their friends to go out somewhere. Kenneth, the shy guy, continued to stare at Sveta, the dark-skinned girl, like under a spell. It was obvious that she did not speak English very well, so Ken looked around desperately looking for an interpreter, and there I was, quickly on the spot. From the first minutes he explained to Sveta that he had been looking at her all day at the Russian ladies social, but being shy he thought that she would not talk to him. Sveta agreed to go out with Ken, but only together with her friend Natalia. And so we all walked to an Italian restaurant not far from the hotel, all five of us.

Kenneth thought that Sveta was naturally very dark-skinned, like native Americans, but it turned out that she had just returned from Cyprus, where she had spent 2 weeks. She explained that normally she is not so dark skinned. Ken joked to Sveta that maybe he should go to a tanning salon to look as beautiful as she. We all laughed and enjoyed the time, and it was just what we Russian ladies call "marry-go-round".
