Showaround: Why did you decide to become one of Showaround Locals?
Ksenia: I decided to join Showaround as a Local because I feel that I have a lot of knowledge to share about my city! I have many friends worldwide, and they tell me that it can sometimes be difficult to understand local life in Kiev. Because of the two: cultural differences and the weird Cyrillic alphabet!
There are some little things and useful tips about each foreign country that can make life easier - if you know them! My purpose is to make each guest of mine, who's visiting Kiev, feel like home! Home is where your heart is.
