One of this days...

After crossing 3 countries by car, just to sit into an train to reach the 4th I had visa issues at the border. So I got kicked out of the train by the boarder guards, where questioned and send back (deported) at at the border. Even this blow up my timeschedule a bit I still managed to had pretty good mood.

But arriving late in a decent town finally found a hotel, shower and a restaurant. Then I start to wonder if I should't been serious upset. When I turned to the waiter asking for the menu in Russian (as that I don't speak the local language) hearing the answer 'sorry, I don't speak POLISH' makes me think this clearly wasn't my day :)

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.
