So, I called a hotline in Germany to rent a car. When the hotline guy asked me for a contact I told him it will be a Russian number.

Hotline guy: "oh, wow… can I can ask you something personally"

I: "please, go ahead"

He: "Does it make sense to go to Russia to... you know… take a look at the girls They are supposed to be amazing!”

Actually after another 5 minutes I convinced him to go at least also to Sankt Petersburg to enjoy a bit of culture. He agreed after I ensured him that the girls will not be worse than in Moscow. This is what I call a reputation! And it was not the first time. Once a guy came up to me with the same questions on a German parking lot right on the highway.

Russia culture is deeply underestimated in Europe, Russian girls are definitely not.

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.
