The meaning of Eastern Exploits is twofold
One: A striking or notable deed, feat or adventure
Two: to utilize for profit or take advantage.
This blog will encompass both of these definitions as I seek to document my travels throughout Eastern Europe and my research on human trafficking in the former Soviet Union.
One thing I love about living in Eastern Europe are all the free concerts and cultural things I can attend. We have then in the US too but since I don't really live in a huge city these opportunities are few and far between. Tonight we went to a sacred music concert with one of our professors and they had music from all the different religions that inhabit Kazan Orthodox, Muslim, and Jewish. It was at the Kremlin which was great because I really haven't spent a ton of time there since I arrived in Kazan.
Me and the Kul Sharif Mosque.
Another one for good measure!
