    Ce faci? (don't know how to spell it) I have a lot of Romanian friends that I met throughout the years. I understand more than I speak. I'm sure you'll have fun and meet lots of people. I'm getting ready to move back to Miami soon too .

    Hi Blurya,

    Welcome to Miami Beach 411. Thanks for posting your question here. I understand you perfectly!

    My friends from Russia just left, after visiting me for a couple of months. We had a great time together, but one thing I noticed was, at times, they would not talk, because they were afraid to use their broken English, which left me feeling like they didn't want to talk to me. So, the worst thing you can do is be silent around others. Americans love it when a person from a different county does there best to speak English.

    oh my God,what I have to say,what I have to do?'
    Don't put any pressure on yourself. Just talk about anything. People love to talk about food, movies, music, sports, the weather, their family, where they're from, what's life like living on a cruise ship, the differences between life in Romaina and United States.

    With my friends from Russia, I really wanted to talk more about their perception of Miami and how it was different than Russia. I wanted to talk about how shopping and driving and restaurants and people were different.

    I am a good english speaker but I don't write very well
    Actually, you write very well, but I did notice in your previous messages, you forgot to add a space after using a comma and a period in a few sentences. In English, we always add a space after using punctuation. =)

    Corina, you sound like someone who will make lots of friends. Your English is great! Trust me, there are many people here that don't speak half as good as you. You're going to have a great time . What part of Romania are you from? I have a friend of mine that who lives in Timisoara.

    Happy to meet you, too!

    When my friends from Russia went back home, they had to take a train from Moscow to their home in Ulyanovsk. I asked them what the train ride was like and they told me that most trains in Russia do not have passenger seats. Instead, the trains have beds that passengers lay on for the journey. They also said the trains run the heaters all the time and it gets very hot on board.

    It was interesting to learn this, because we don't have trains like that here. Stuff like that is fun to talk about!

    Thanks for showing us your city. Showing people picture of your life and where you live is a great way to break the ice (English slang for: get to know someone).

    When my Russian friends arrived in Miami, they purchased a Google Nexus 7 tablet computer. It was a great device to have on vacation to browse the web and show pictures to other people. The tablet only cost $250 and does everything an Apple iPad will do.

    What is the name of the cruise ship you'll be working on?

    When you're here, will you live full time on the ship?

    Hi Corina! I am Gus' wife. Welcome! Thank you for sharing your photos with us! You seem like a very friendly person that will not have any problem making friends.

    It does not look like Enchantment of the Seas comes to Miami. Are you visiting Royal Caribbean headquarters before starting your job? You must be very excited to start working with your husband. Gus and I have worked together since we met; it's a lot of fun!

    The pictures your city look wonderful. I'm sure you will love your job, I think the ability to travel and still have income is great, and traveling for your job is pretty much the best arrangement. Miami is definitely big I was born and raised her and there is plenty to see.

    That's why so many of my Romanian friends are in USA, Canada and UK. A lot of them used to live in Italy, but moved because it hasn't been very good there for a while.
