DIALOGUE 1

K = KATA GYONGY, HUNGARY

R = reporter

R: Is anything you couldn’t get used to in Novosibirsk?

K: Everything is different for me here: food, work, metro, language, so I simply had to get used to all of it.

R: Which Novosibirsk habits would you like to keep when you return to Hungary?

K: Oh, I enjoy the tradition of getting a taxi in the street which is not a real taxi! You can just raise your arm and go, and it’s safe and common!

R: Is there something you couldn’t get used to in Novosibirsk?

K: I could never grasp why people start getting into the metro and buses before the ones getting off would have exited. It’s like sumo wrestling with many participants.

DIALOGUE 2

E = ELENA KRANJC, SLOVENIA

R = reporter



R: What was the biggest shock for you in Novosibirsk?

E: To see changes in the architecture. Half pleasant, half negative shock. Red-bricked houses of mixed architectural styles look awful.

R: What is the coolest place in Novosibirsk?

E: I guess it is the kitchen. Whatever you go – it doesn’t matter if the apartment is big or small – people end up drinking and talking in the kitchen. My Novosibirsk friends say it’s a habit from the past.

R: Did you have to quit any of your habits or hobbies since you came here?

E: Well, I have to learn not to be punctual however funny it may sound. Otherwise I waste my time waiting for people.

DIALOGUE 3

B = BILL SCHMIDT, AMERICA

R = reporter



R: What was your first impression of Novosibirsk?

B: Just great! It’s full of different characters. The rhythm of its life bears resemblance to a heart of a living thing. It never rests.

R: Which Novosibirsk habits would you like to keep when you come back to where you live?

B: To stay with your friends until five in the morning, and then sleep for five hours, wake up and feel refreshed. I can’t explain why but in Novosibirsk five hours sleep is enough for me.

DIALOGUE 4

D = DANIEL MULLER, AUSTRIA

R = reporter



R: Was there something that has really surprised or shocked you here?

D: Well… Actually nothing. There were no extreme differences for me, comparing it with my country. Mmm… may be heat. It’s too hot here in summer. It was a surprise for me. I supposed Siberia to be a very cold place.

R: Did you try Russian cuisine?

D: Yes. It’s more or less normal food. And I like that you eat a lot of meat. By the way, my favorite Russian dish is pelmeni.

R: What traits of Novosibirsk life would you prefer never to see again?

D: The queues, rubbish in the streets and homeless people all around.
