Sunday Conversation at the Lufthansa Ticket Corner

Sunday while helping some friends check-in at DIA, I had an interesting conversation with the lady at the Lufthansa counter...

Me  (reading her name tag): "Svetlana Hernandez.  I bet there is a story behind your name."

Svetlana (with a thick Russian accent):  I left my home for a Latin lover.

Me: Like Trotsky.

Svetalata:  Yes, like Trotsky.  Ochen bueno.  (No lie, she combined  Russian and Spanish.)

very. Sorry I should have used the Cyrillic 'очень' so you could have understood it.
