    Why do you choose to be base in grozny ? What triggered you ? And how do you feel about living in a muslim country ?

      Hi Faris,

      I was drawn to Chechen culture and arts. After visiting Grozny once in 2007 I fell in love with it. I am accustomed to living abroad and spent many years in Tokyo. I can’t really comment on how it feels to live in a Muslim republic…I only think of it as a foreign land with different customs, culture, language, food, religion and beliefs – and I love it.

        We can see that you love Chechnya and show the positive sides. Your culture videos are lovely to watch.
        I also like your tongue-in-cheek approach, it gives the emissions a bit of “salt and pepper”, for example when you do things in “high speed”.
