How I won the green card, and what happened next

First, about the green card itself. Every year, the US Department of State conducts a Diversity Immigrant Visa, a green card drawing, and provides 55 visas. What is a green card? This is a residence permit in the United States with the right to live and work in America. All…

For the first 1,5 months of living in a new apartment in California, we received an electricity bill for $ 179. This situation did not make us very happy, but it taught us a lot. And we decided to conduct an experiment "how not to go broke on electricity." Looking ahead, ...
