Wee in Russia



I may have finally learned how to post a photo.

This should be our interpreter. She could reach the ground much better than me.

Taken at the Vladivostok Suzuki dealership. The place had a restaurant & bar. Sold cars and bikes. Really well done.

Looks to me like she could do a lot of things better than you could!

Typical domestic Russian motorcycle. These things tank-slap bad.

The further we went into the Russian outback the more marriage offers she got. Several a day. Guys would just walk up and ask her. They were dead serious.

Did you get to keep her?

I'm not always sarcastic.
Sometimes I'm facetious.
Or ironic.....

If a tree falls in a forest and lands on a politician, even if you can't hear the tree or the screams, I'll bet you'd at least hear the applause.

Thanks for the pics...

I spent three years in South Korea and parts thereabout from '86 - '89. Used to listen to Radio Moscow on a station out of Vladivostok, kinda interesting to see a tiny bit of the area. It's not exactly as I had imagined.

Do you have anymore photos you care to share? Do you have them available for viewing elsewhere online?

Regardless, thank you. Though I've never been there that still brought back some memories.

I have more stuff. I'm putting them on photobucket. I just found out I can email them to photobucket. I'll get them up.

It helps that I finally got an Internet connection at home. No more sitting in the library parking lot at night.
