Traveler's story: The Baikal Lake

Of course, each of you heard about Baikal. The deepest lake in the world, the cleanest one and the most famous national monument in the whole Siberia.

I'll tell you all details of my trip, and if you have never been there, it will be a good chance to know something interesting.

Identity: you are what you eat and what you consume

 During the discussion we will look at the relationship between possessions and identity, and how marketing companies use it to influence consumer behaviour and perceptions. When buying a certain brand, what are we really paying for? Why do we purchase certain products and services? Why do people go on a diet? What are vegetarianism and veganism about? Why do we eat certain meats and not others? Is our identity defined by our possessions? Does it differ for men and women? In today’s society, it is easier or more difficult to attain self-identity?
