I grew up under Communism so we could only learn Russian, and then when Communismfell in 1989 we could learn a few more things and have the freedom to travel and the freedom of speech - and the freedom of dreaming, really.
I can dance for, like, four or five hours nonstop without even drinking water. It's a beautiful, beautiful thing.
