Re: Russia, you so crazy!!!
Or watch "Moscow on the Hudson" with citizens running to join lines without knowing what will be for sale at the end of the line but something is being sold. And after defecting, the lead character is sent to the store to buy coffee and has a panic attack being overwhelmed by the choices. When I was 11 I think, my parents were going out of town for the weekend and had gotten Tania's mom who both immigrated from Russia to come stay with me. Obviously Tania's mom hadn't gotten out much since coming to the US. When my parents were about to leave she asked "what are we supposed to eat?" I took her to the freezer in the utility room, opened it and told her "we have ribeye steaks, T-bone steaks, hot dogs, fillet Mignon and hamburger patties " and she nearly passed out. She would have hit the floor if my step-dad hadn't caught her, she said "I have never seen so much food in one place before!"
