I am pretty unhappy right now, 3rd time this week I stay in an traffic jam because they closed the streets due to a politician.
They like to to it. For approx. A douzend high ranking officals theycut a piece out of the pie which reassembles moscow where all traffic goes in circles.

Someone may wonder, how this can happen. Don't Russian have helicopters?
Or the sense to calculate the economic costs of sending their capitals into the infrastructural meltdown twice a day?
Believe, sure they have both. I secretly assume there plains another componente with in.
This middle Asian touch to show who has the big balls and is the patriarch.

And who shows all the damn rest of this town better who is the boss, as the guy in a convoy with 180 km/h when all the rest stays in traffic jam.

Here is a link, who support this thesis. There you see that this behavior becomes worse as more Caucasians.

Dutzen auf Deutsch ist dozen auf Englisch. Caucasian не пользуется синонимом для человека кавказского произхождения, это белый человек.

About this blog

This blog is a close up on Russia and the CIS. I am not giving you the big picture.
I would anyway fail. I am too long here. So beauty & decay,
education & corruption, high culture & kafka-style administration are meanwhile normal for me.
So this blog is like a painting from from Roy Lichtenstein... when you are with your nose on it :) You will just see the dots, not gaining any understanding of the whole.

Most things will look strange in this blog. But you can be sure, I would not live here, if there would not be a lot of great things here. Unfortunately, the weired stories are more interesting to tell & read.
Don’t judge Russia on this blog, if you want to know the country, come over and take a look by your own.
