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

Made it back to Moscow…

Boza and I are adjusting to Moscow. Not easy for us country boys, but for Svetochka we do it…

I packed the car Friday night and Saturday morning, I then looked around at around 9 a.m. Saturday and told Boza, “Lets go!”

Yes I travel Russia alone. I am not that scared American trying to hide in Moscow and talk good or bad about Russia. If I say traffic sucks, then you can bet money that I am living it daily many times. If I say Russians act a certain way? I say it from experience and not wanting it to be that way…. I live real Russia…

He was not happy, but we left the Tiny Russian Village and started the long hard trip home. Traffic sucks and Boza and I were alone, no Svetochka to be the navigator. I know the way by heart and about 6 p.m. Saturday night we were within range of home. The hard part was the famous terrible MKAD ring highway around Moscow…

MKAD in red…. We get on it around M2 at the bottom and go to the top. Either MKAD or through the center of Moscow…

The MKAD is hell with wheels. It is always so full that you have issues deciding if it is rush hour traffic or just idiots who have nothing better to do than drive around and around the huge 100 kilometer ring road. I saw so many wrecks, hundreds of people watching movies on there special built in screens in the dash and women putting on makeup…

No wonder there is hundreds of wrecks on the MKAD everyday…

One point there was three wrecks, broken down cars, in three separate lanes of the MKAD. One on the right side, left side and in the middle. That was a mess and each spot had cops dealing with each separate issue. Then as always, just a little farther down the road, due to a Russian idiot cutting off people to get around the mess, they wreck also. I watched a SUV weaving in traffic and within a 100 meters, he cut off a Volvo wagon and smash. That makes for hours of driving and all you have to do is go thirty kilometers. The MKAD is a madhouse, a six lane bumper car madhouse… 😉

I sat behind a huge truck and we made our way slowly home. Time is not a factor, but my life is and Boza life is important also and his comfort. To be wrecked would be hard with a doggy in tow…

It is what makes Russia, Russia…


Going to get a radio, We do not have one (working) in the Volga and it is time. I needed some music and they are cheap and easy to install now. Aliexpress has a radio that has built in speakers and is just down our alley. Look at link below, going to order as soon as I find the money…

Counts on the day and exchange rate, but from 1000 to 1500 rubles (delivered) buys this radio and it will solve the issue to have to install speakers in the doors. Has USB, SD Card, Bluetooth, AM-FM and what else is needed! Just will make the time go better. We have a radio in the dash, but it is dead and this will slide right in, with basic wire hook up…

Russians are buying it like crazy, gotta be good right?


Therefore, Boza and I are trying to adjust. Svetochka is still sick, but getting better and she had to go to work today. I am not sure if it will make her better or not. She seemed to get better when Boza and I showed up. 😉 She was worried and was going to tell me to stay in the village, but I left, knowing she would argue with Boza and I leaving. We came anyway, Boza and I are that way…

In a few days we will be back on track in Moscow, just so many people everywhere. Makes it hard on Boza and I…


Time to go, I need to take a nap and get my system on track. Regardless if I seem non-stop at times, I still have had six heart attacks in my life and I must keep that in mind. So, take a nap I will, then Boza and I will walk for an hour or so and try to stay out of the 15 to 20 million people that inhabit Moscow at any given time…

Have a nice day….see you tomorrow…
