KAZAN: Alyona is studying economics and writing her diploma work on special tax regimes. She hopes to work in business upon completion of her studies. At the same time, she is getting a degree as a math teacher. I asked her why dhe needed that. "I do it for myself. I get a lot of satisfaction out of it."
MOSCOW: I have noticed quite a few guys in Moscow wearing bow ties in recent months, including in creative ways. Danil, 18, was wearing his bow tie with a polo shirt as he hung out near the Moscow river with three female friends. A student at one of Russia's top economics universities and future banker, Danil said he has about 6 bow ties and started wearing them 2 years ago.
