Welcome to Lyudmila's homepage!
is the only page written in English since my site was created for
Russian-speaking people taking their first steps on the American land or
planning to move to the USA, or maybe just interested in life and traditions of
this country. I don't pretend to have a complete knowledge of all
peculiarities of life in the US. I am only making an attempt to share what I
know with other people and tell about my experience after four years of
permanent residence in this country.
My site consists of five parts:
Chronicle relates to my personal life and my family;
Notebook is the main section that portrays many sides of everyday life in
the United States such as shopping, education, transportation, weather, medical
- New York
City I.Q. gives you some interesting facts from the history of New York;
In conclusion, I would like to
introduce myself shortly. My name is Lyudmila Dolgopyat. I was born and spent 23
years of my life in Moscow, Russia. For the past four years and until now my
home has been in New York which I am more and more
falling in love with. During these years I have held a position of general
manager of household :-). I am married to a wonderful man
Igor Tandetnik who provided technical and moral
support in design of this site.
Very sincerely yours,
