Very calm and brightly painted Danish houses which keep the spirit of the past.

You have really been around a lot Olga..btw what was the subject of your symposium?? Cheers, Peter

Olga I. Yakovenko on October 23, 2008

Peter, it was the IUTAM symposium "150 Years of Vortex Dynamics". My husband is a specialist in this domain, I am oceanographer. Often I translate him the texts and we do some common works. in 2006 we were the organizers of the similar symposium in Moscow. In this symposium I participated only in the beginning, and then I run over the places I could see.

I had an interesting impression from Christiania^ very similar to poor old villages or datchas. But here this wasn't very poor. The manner of life. For me it was familiar, for example a jacket of a nail. And very @quiet@ place. In Russia it should be dangerous to go there, especially in night.

Wow that's a highly sophisticated subject :)..I'm glad you had the opportunity to sneak away and get a good impression of DK and yes Olga Christiania is a very special place -a quiet world in the rustling big city...with relaxed people and small restaurants and lotsa bikes. Cheers, Peter

Trop tot, peut-etre. Mais en meme temps la population du Danemark fait la moitie de celle que transporte le metro de Moscou chaque jour (5.5 mln contre 9-10 mln)...

Andrea, yes, this is Elsinor we know from Shakespeare. An Hamlet lived in the castle Kronborg just on the shore of the sea, exactly the strait. 2-3 Km to Sweden from there. DAnish people have a difficult grammer, many letters are not read or read specifically (similar problem with English). Olga

Andrea, in general, there exists alphabeths made specially for their langages (Latin, Greek, ans Slave, from closer to us). In Russia it is possible easily read the word,if you know the alphabeth, as sounds correspond to letters (or, more exactly, inversly). In our language grammer is awful even for us.

As to the Greek alphabeth, it has letters which are different with latin ones in sounds, and common with our sounds. I didn't know about this before I made the Catalogue of the tsunamis in the Mediterranean Sea. I had to verify names and identify them, as they were different in different languages for the same place. I never studied Greek, and I was sure, that the mathematical ponounciation of greek letters is the same, that there. And during my work, I found that beta is V. So, you have the name Basilio, and in Russian it is written Vasily (Василий). You see, the letter B.

All the langages which use not original for their languages alphabeths, makes constructions on Latin of Russian letters (for example) - the diacritics. In Danmark they do the diacritics and some letters change the pronounciation of others. Fortunately they know well English, what I can't say about Russians. Olga
