    Small anecdote that goes with what you mentioned.
    When I say Oriental I mean it in the traditional sense of Eastern. For example, the crusaders thought of the Islamic world as the Orient. It was only much later that the term became a reference to the far east. Russia is really pulled between to worlds in cultural terms. Of course you also simply say that Russia is it's own civilization.

    Haven't read fiction in ages. Thinking of some more Dostoyevsky now. Lol
