Return to Russia – Episode 4: Hospitality Practice

A tiny table unfolded to take up all of the little kitchen’s unclaimed floor space. The Coe family hosted me for the evening in their 2 room flat (Americans, that means one bedroom, a living room that doubles as the ‘master suite,’ one little kitchen and a small bath. Theirs is a family of 5…. Well, 6 if you count the pet, Pumpkin aka Goggles. They have also been known to host out-of-town company for overnight stays.

This kind of hospitality is one of the things that I miss about Russia. The question is never, “Is my home big enough to have company?” There is always room for a friend. Hospitality is more important than a Pinterest-perfect party.

Thank you, Coe family! I love you all!
