A Word is Not a Sparrow

A New Phraselist, Russian Phrases for Arianna

Arianna, Mightyverse curator, QA fanatic and rabid Farsi learner, heads out on vacation on Thursday. Tonight we cooked up a batch of phrases for her and her sister to use on their first trip to Russia. She has been working long hours this past month and is now taking time off to travel with her doppelganger twin sister in the freezing Moscow winter cold. They cause all sorts of confusion while traveling by dressing alike and pretending to be 1 person, a super thrifty trick twins everywhere use to pay single room rates in hotels and save money at all you can eat buffets.

Hopefully they’ll find great uses for “A word is not a sparrow…” and “We will be making fresh mushroom soup in the evening”. Bon Voyage Arianna!
