In Russia it is said that chickens are milked, and cows carry eggs. (A mockery of those who believe ridiculous rumors.)

I am always surprised…

How dare they try to drain the ponds we have to walk and drive through…

I have been stunned by the appearance of road drainage…

This is not a common thing. Yes, Russia has drainage on a few selected big highways, but for the most part, you never see road water drainage anywhere and will encounter huge ponds to drive/walk through…

But…

I am seeing that the infrastructure is actually under the roads and all of a sudden after 12 years of me walking around and driving Russia, we have drainage grates being installed…

Do I look happy?

That image above is of a new drainage grate near our home. It is one of six I have found recently and I am just amazed. Seriously; I even took a picture of it. It just amazes me. When you thought that you would never see water drainage on a normal side road and drive these roads for years and years and look at roads being paved and they never care if the road has a crown or not to drain water and and and….then they put in water drainage for the roads…

I am one happy bear!

I guess you have to live in Russia to understand…
