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

Second cup of coffee….thoughts

Going to start this post and then walk my morning walk. It is cold out, but not near as cold as it has been and it feels almost equator like at -12 C. It is true, once you adjust to harsh cold, then around -10 becomes soft feeling. Unless you are coming from +10 to -10 then -10 is harsh…

(5.5 mmol/L this morning at 4:30 a.m. and that wakes me up and no more sleeping at this point…)

Walking in Russia takes some getting use to….

Russians seem to have no sense of the correct side of the sidewalk to walk. I know that in the Metro everyone has rules that say, “walk to the left”. And for the most part, people follow that rule. Russians drive on the right side of the road and for the most part, people follow that rule (hint: “for the most part”) But for the most part, Russians can not walk a sidewalk for their life. The people walk all over the damn place: Babushka is walking down the middle of the sidewalk. Five kids arm in arm walking across the whole side walk. Three mothers with baby carriages, you got it side by side and that pretty much holds to anyone walking the sidewalks. No right or left rule, no be courteous to elderly, kids, dogs, cats and or bears. A walk on a Russian sidewalk is truly, “Russian Roulette” at times….and no one but no one hardly gives an inch, 90% of the time.

This is in total opposite to how they treat people in general. There is actually three major issues that I find in Russia. 1. holding doors 2. rules for sidewalks and 3. driving skills sucks big time (same as walking the sidewalks)….the rest of the things I handle no problem. Truth is it is a a lack of being taught to have certain public acceptable courtesies…

I accept as a huge factor, that there is too many people in too small of an area and it has its drawbacks…
