Gimmee a Break

I was on the Other Side.

Did you know that the rest of the world has beautiful vistas and fresh, flavorful food? Strangers treat each other with dignity and warmth, and public art is able to exist for the delight of all without being pissed or vomited on. Women don't dress like transvestites, and men are just taking numbers to rub sunscreen on your boobs.

If that place exists, it is a high probability that it is not inhabited by Russians :)

So you been back to Swizerland or Sweden again... Even though you left 5 years ago and ended up in Russia...

The other side of the coin is that yes..the food taste fine, spiced up and elegant..People treat each other with respect and dress appropriate..and you know what...The reason you left in the first place is because you thought it was BORING! The honest truth about the world is that 90% of the world work the way russia works. The whole of China, Russia, Arab world, Latin America accept bribes, treat women like shit, shamelessly aspire to drive a bentley while thinking they are alot better than their neighbour driving a lada, loves to make money, spend it and really don't give a shit about people being killed in car crashed every day! Thats the world. The only countries which does not think like this is Scandinavian, Uk, Swizerland and..well not sure US counts..maybe australia..

So conclusion..The whole of the world works like Russia... I find the Russians have a heart of gold - And teeth to match!

Heart of gold my ass. The Big Russian Soul is just a front to get away with being a total shit to each other. So what if you'll stuff me with bliny and vodka when I come into your home? You still step over dead people in the metro.

OK OK, let's avoid turning this into Russian-bashing fest...

Remember, MDBIT is a celebration of the ways in which Moscow is special. Not good special. Boo Radley lock-in-the-basement-and-feed-fish-heads special. My special, special Moscow.

That said, Moscow feels much less innocuous this time around. Like diving into a gas chamber. It will certainly be my last homecoming. IF I GET OUT AT ALL.

Look.

Moscow is hell and poison and we gotta get out of here. Yes, I know the transportation is good and the chicks are hot, which is confusing, but they are just there to make you think that its not hell when it is.

OK. I will go to Istanbul as point man then send for you on the Underground Railroad.

Over and out.
