Great pics. I wouldnt mind seeing Russia some day.

 

Btw, you are not limited to five pictures per day. As a new poster, you must have your first five posts approved by a moderator, after which you can post freely. Its an anti-bot measure we take. Oh and posts in Way Off-Topic do not count toward that total.

OK I'm literally hanging my head in shame right now. When I clicked on this thread I literally thought the OP meant St. Petersburg, Florida. Which would be about as exicting as a trip to the grocery store. When I saw those beautiful pictures I realized my error.

 

Please keep going Bogarus.

Hey man, visiting the grocery is the high point of my week

Well I have never been to Russia myself but I have had Russian girlfriend and I live in Finland Europe. From my country you can easily travel to St Petersburg with for example

train from Helsinki to there but you need also a VISA and passport is not enough.

 

I have been in Kiev Ukraine and Tallina Estonia and I do know lot a but Russian culture.

 

Here are things to remember;

1. There is crime but if you don't act totally careless you should be safe. Russia is still more dangerous then Finland, but so is also USA.

As a general rule you can **** Russian women, but don't try to annoy the mob in Russia and police is very

corrupted. I get along fine with Russians, but I don't try to play some dumb moral "hero". Many Russians are nationalistic and proud of Russia

so don't go there and say Russia sucks and USA rocks.

 

How about getting wife from Russia? Well here is the thing. Russia is not a poor developing country. You have bigger chance if you can speak Russian language. You really to have be RICH if you wanna impress Russians with money only. Russian women wanting sex? Very much, but language barrier is usually the biggest problem.

Many Russian women like to live in Russia and moving to USA is not so lucrative unless you are charming candidate or RICH.

 

I would not call myself RICH, but I am landlord and belong to this group:

The upper middle class, aka the mass affluent, are loosely defined as individuals with a net worth or investable assets between $100,000 to $2 million.

 

2. Prostitution is rampart everywhere. In my country prostitution is legal, but many many prostitutes in my country are season travelers from Russia.

3. We Finns have good English language skills, but the majority in Russia don't speak English.

4. Russian women can be very beautiful at least my ex Russian girlfriend was that.

5. Many Russians are slightly racist at least so I have heard it means also that if you are not white Caucasian they might stare at you.

6. Be wary of scammers and business proposals. I was approached by scammers in Kiev Ukraine, but said no to them.

7. Yes there are great sights for tourists to see.

8. If you go to some place and you don't see the prices always ask the price before you order drinks.

9. Immigrant policy? There are not many immigrants at all really in Russia because most of  they don't dare to go there and specially not stay

there and it is actually very capitalistic system. This means if you are not white Caucasian as I am people might stare at you however in big

cities I guess they are used to tourists.

10. Russians like modern music, but electronic , club, hip hop, disco trance etc. is favored over rock at least the majority taste.

 

Overall why I have never gone to Russia is the annoying VISA thing and language barrier combined. I don't need a VISA to Estonia or Ukraine. Getting VISA is not that hard, but it costs extra money.

Murder rate in Finland: 1.6 per 100,000

 

Murder rate in the US: 3.9 per 100,000

 

Murder rate in Russia: 9.5 per 100,000

 

Hey, at least we're not Venezuela.

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

So... Russian women like guys with money? Wow there's a shock! There are 206 countries in the world. Being rich is a boon to getting laid in every one of them!

I have mentioned this before but the thing that irks me about interacting with Russian strippers is that they have no interest or inclination on just chatting and making small talk

 

I know this sounds like a silly criticism but it matters to me, at least pretend to want to talk to me......I am use to that and banal platitudes are better than " how much money you got "   :biggrin:

 

I understand they have there reasons and cultural interaction but its difficult to connect with someone who seems to treat you like some ATM
