Ukraine Photo Time on Windows to Russia: (07/31/2012)

Photo above is the sight that you see on a Russian train. The train is nothing but feet and more feet! This last train trip was very quiet and nice. While it was a little too hot for my taste, the train riders where a wonderful group of people and everyone was literally smoke free and no beer or vodka. It was plain good. I just had to take the picture of the feet… 🙂

The picture above is another trait of Ukraine and Russia that I love. You can buy beef, pork or Chicken almost anywhere. This stand was amongst a group of tents near the Metro station where I go to the Russian consulate at. You do not have any choice but to walk through the tents, because they are right on the sidewalk and blocking the way. They are strategically placed as to make you walk in a weave back and forth to get to any of the stores along the way. Or in my case to the consulate…

What a wonderful world this is and I always remember back to the old days in America, when my Grandma and I would walk downtown Kansas City and I would eat home made Tamales wrapped in the corn husk and she would buy 10 pounds of ground beef, that was ground in front of us on the street corner. They use to let me turn the crank handle on the grinder…

My how times have changed from my past…

The photo above is a pet peeve of mine! Nothing irritates me more than some idiot disturbing my walk with a horn honk for me to get out of the way as I walk down the sidewalk. No not the street, but the sidewalk…

One thing about Ukraine that is worse than Russia, is the idiots that drive on the sidewalk and Russians are just plain stupid when it comes to sidewalk driving. I never thought anyone could surpass Russian sidewalk driving, but Ukraine takes the cake…

This guy in the car on the picture was trying to bypass the stop light and he drove as you see through the market that we were all walking through to get somewhere. As you can see in the picture that it is right at the Metro station (Big green M!) and he was honking all the way…

Ukraine people are so use to it that they do not react at all. They just walk around the sidewalk racers and hardly even glance at them. I still have too much American blood in me and I get perturbed at them… 🙂

That is it for today and the sun is hidden behind clouds today and I hope it stays that way. Much cooler and I will try to get some writing on my book done while I am here. I move to a flat tomorrow! It has climate control and WiFi, so I will be “In Like Flint…”

Have a good day…
