Виталя vs Владимир - Written Expression - Намеднись в Ульяновске

Сохраните на английском языке сюжет, устранив авторскую стилистику отрывка.


Намеднись был в Ульяновске - невзрачный, ненашедший себя в перестроечные-перестрелочные времена городок. Заканчивая вояж, вышел с другом встречать такси и вижу бурную разборку двух тяжело выпивших аборигенов, сопровождающуюся тыканьем друг друга в грудь и громким матом… Казалось бы обыденность провинциального городка, но каково было
наше удивление, когда аборигены обратились к нам с вопросом: “Извините, пожалуйста, не могли бы вы подсказать дату смерти Александра Васильевича Суворова?” Наше мнение об Ульяновске претерпело мгновенное и весьма положительное изменение…

I visited Ul'yanovsk some days ago. The little town is not interesting and it hadn't any development during Perestroyka times and after(after those times) afterwards.
I and my friend went out to get our taxi (to get a taxi) at the finish of the travel.(at the end of the trip) their trip At the street, I saw a noisy quarrel of two heavy drank (badly drunk) heavily local men. They shouted at each other using abusive language and seem were (seemed were) seemed to be going to have a fight.
I thought that this was one of the usual things in the provincial town then. But we were very surprised and our opinion concerning Ul'yanovsk improved when the locals asked us “Excuse me(us), would you mind saying us(saying to us) the date of death of Alexsander Vasil'evish Suvorov( Alexsander Vasil'evish Suvorov's death)?”

They consider Ul'yanovsk to be a city of bad manners.
However, one could be amazed to see (meet) two drunk locals addressing you nicely and politely.
