Frozen Eyes Shut; Cold…

I stepped out the backdoor this morning, it was black and the wind was blowing at around 20 kilometers an hour, blasting straight into my face. That was the good part, the bad part was the temperature. I do not know the temperature and I do not care. I just know that it was frozen, as I descended the four stairs off the backdoor, my eyes watered and froze shut instantly…

Frozen and I mean instantly…

I stood on the second stair from the top, blind and Boza pulling me to get running and playing. I am lucky that I always grab the rail the first thing and or get near it and my hand found the rail to steady myself. Lucky me again, that I wear mittens, they became frozen to the rail. Then I proceeded to get Boza back from pulling on me and cleared my eyes. The tears had frozen my eyelashes together and then the eyelids. I understand the need for goggles in higher wind conditions…

Coffee-iconTherefore when I got back to the flat with Boza, after seeing Sveta off to the bank, downtown Moscow, even though she is officially off due to holidays, duty calls and some work can only be done when all others are gone; the coffee was exceptionally good this morning…

Then after reading some news, working on some other affiliate websites, and working on my Russian. I decided to write this article. For you see at first I was so disturbed by the western press and her blatant lies, that I figured on ignoring all that is happening. For it is obvious that ignorance is amok in the west and nothing, but totally allowing the west to collapse under her own garbage, is all that will help to start the correction back to sanity…

I never thought that the Orwell Book 1984, would be used as a guide on how to run a country and an empire. I think that he expected it used as a warning, of what not to do and or allow…

Oh and speaking of collapse; Russia is doing just fine! My coffee is cheaper yet per 100 grams and bread is 9.5 rubles per black loaf. I find somethings such as eggs have gone off the deep end in price, but generally the prices are stable and getting cheaper actually and the stores are pack full of Russian made products. My coffee went from 89 rubles to 69 rubles per hundred grams and that makes me smile…

For it is about rubles not dollars in Russia and or yes it is frozen here also… đŸ™‚

    Hello Kyle,
    Must admit I’ve been reading through your posts, stopping, smiling, realizing a lot of what you are sharing I’ve experienced. I stopped here since as we were once Westerners ourselves looking for the enemy in the wrong place. Orwell’s thoughts though I don’t remember perfectly became a reality only to be hidden because they were in plain sight. The enemy isn’t over here or over there, it’s in the minds of those believe they have to find an enemy to believe in the first place.
    I’ve been in Russia now coming up on 3 years and have found that I have little desire to return to the land of “Oz”. The Wizard wants everyone to believe all is okay in the land and everyone should be happy to live there. But Dorothy understood that there’s no place like home (the motherland).
    Blessings,
    Steve

    Steve,

    This October will be 10 years for me in Russia. I am not able to go back to the “Land of Oz!” I simply can not go back. But I also see changes that I experienced all my life in the U.S. starting to happen in Russia. Though I have said many years, “Russia is what America was 50 to 60 years ago!” That is a generalization and can be construed wrong, but it fits my feelings about everything…

    Thanks

    Kyle
