This is one of the reasons why we love doing The Siberian Times - it brings so many unexpected comments from the readers that lived, worked or visited Siberia. Like this one about the mining city of Kemerovo - how many of you knew it was a heaven on earth? 

David, Kemerovo, but originally from Wales:

'I have been teaching English in 2 universities this year in Kemerovo, and can say that the people I have met here have been very, very friendly and hospitable. Most have a smile on their face and go out of their way to be kind and helpful to me.

'I am here until the end of November and don't want to leave. Kemerovo is a beautiful city with enough to keep me happy, plus it has some of the most gorgeous women ever seen, every time I leave the house it's like being in heaven!'

Dear David, if you are reading this, please get back in touch and write more about your life in Siberia!

Γειά σας πολίτες του Κεμέροβο..
Είμαι ο Βαγγέλης από την Ελλάδα..
Αγαπώ πολύ αυτή τη πόλη με τους μεγάλους δρόμους, τα μεγάλα πεζοδρόμια, τις μεγάλες πλατείες, τα πολλά και μεγάλα πάρκα τους ανθρώπους της οι οποίοι είναι πολύ φιλικοί κι εξυπηρετικοί.
Αγαπώ και λατρεύω τη γυναίκα μου Νατάσα η οποία κατάγεται από το Κεμέροβο.
Αγαπώ και το γιό μου Μιχαήλ που τώρα βρίσκεται στο Κεμέροβο.
Σε λίγες μέρες θα είμαι κι εγώ κοντά τους στο Κεμέροβο..
Ο Θεός να σας έχει καλά ..

Yes, I also would like to add huge compliments to the City of Kemerovo and its people,whose hearts beat in synchronisation with the pulsating, glowing red heart of their statue "The miner ".This towering figure seems to protect and comfort eternally all those under its gaze and shadow. I arrived in Kemerovo by the " Kubass Train "from Moscow approximately 5 yrs ago, ------I would've never guessed! WOW a Siberian City having such amazing vibrations of excitement and friendliness ,it had style,it had modern contemporary services, it had everything. The siberian August weather was absolute glorious and the City seemed transformed into one huge garden of of blossoming flowers The mining museum tour was my favourite highlight and the well dressed female guide spoke excellent english. She was a credit to the City and its University Class of english language learning . The car hire people (damn I forget their names ) were of such help and deservedly to be highly recommended for their care and services . Another highlight was witnessing a russian wedding in the heart of the City on a sunny Saturday afternoon and watching the young russian couple brimming with happiness and whose smiles were wider than the River Tom. This beautiful russian wedding ceremony told me one simple story that being born in Kemerovo, getting educated in Kemerovo,,living/working in Kemerovo would be the envy of so many .I will never forget you (Kemerovians ) or your City. Thank you all so much for an experience that was beyond my wildest dreams and expectations. A great place and an even greater people . My deepest thanks must go to the Shvalov family who cared and fed me whilst I stayed in Kemerovo and whose son Alexander was a true siberian in showing great courage and trust and guiding me on an unforgettable and enjoyable trip to Lake Baikal and return .

I never expected my comments to be published, and so quickly, in such a really polished short article. Thank you, I am very pleased you did it. I am doing my best to ensure that Kemerovo attracts positive publicity, by sending in reviews of places I have visited on Trip Advisor for example. Plus, I attach photos to my Facebook page to let friends and family know about lovely places here, that it isn't freezing here all the time and that there are no bears roaming the city streets!

If you would like to know more about the creative writing and poetry workshops I am doing here in the universities and the marvellous work being written by the students, please contact me via my email tybraf@hotmail.com and I will be more than happy to give some information. Many thanks. David
