С таким разговорником хоть куда...



Language: Russian
Translation: Exatj zajcem
Meaning: To travel without a ticket

As home to the Trans-Siberian Railway, Russia probably has quite a few train-related idioms. “To ride as a hare” means to ride the train without a ticket, as we all know hares are prone to do. Apparently it comes from the fact that fare-dodgers would shake like a hare whenever the ticket inspectors would come round.
