[COMMENT]


Explanation:
Hey! These are kids...not psychological specimens! I would never send one of my children on a "cognitive journey [walk, excursion]"...not without a chaperon!

Davai, davai! Consider the CONTEXT!!!!

[DISAGREEMENT]


Explanation:
If the Russian writer had wanted to stress "educational", he/she could have availed him/herself of perfectly fine and clear Russian adjectives limited to that concept. To reach so far away from the "flavor" of the original Russian is to stretch one's creative efforts to the limits of credibility and faithfulness to the original text!

[FISSIONABLE FUEL...AND SHORT FUSES]


Explanation:
In all my time on this planet, I never "felt" a flavor...yet Davorka takes umbrage at me for "feeling" a flavor...he/she has mystical powers that defy the ordinary realm of the senses as we know them! I "smell" a "taste" coming on...I "hear" the "vision" of my "tastes"!

And now I understand what syntax is all about...such sin...it taxes the imagination!
