Quotes from Bess Flowers's Characters

    1. Russian Visa Official: Well everything is in order. I hope you will enjoy your trip to Russia, Madame.
    2. Gossip: Thank you. Oh, by the way, I've heard so many rumors about laundry conditions in Russia. Is it advisable to take one's own towels?
    3. Russian Visa Official: Certainly not Madame. That is only capitalistic propaganda. We change the towel every week.
