Member Holly Norton Reports on Fulbright Trip to Russia
"In this first component of a Fulbright project sponsored by the Midwest Institute, which will culminate in a conference next April, I learned more than I could have hoped to and also realized how much more I have to learn, particularly about Russian people. An American student we met there compared them to walnuts, with a hard exterior and soft interior (once you get to know them), as opposed to Americans who, he said, are more like apricots, soft on the outside with a hard core. I can see why Russians are “a hard nut to crack.” They have had to be tough to survive the oppression, deprivation, and upheaval they have experienced, and they are surprisingly warm and open after all of that."
