That's it! [Jun. 27th, 2003|01:37 pm]

Это ве-ли-ко-леп-но! Это просто всем хурмам Хурма! Читать и плакать пол-часа!

Russians use the underground twice a day: in the morning and in the evening, getting to and from work. A great number of workers and engineers go down to the subway stations. They are waiting for bears. A foreigner can tell that bears are approaching by the strong stench. Russians don't even pay attention to this. They themselves have a tradition to eat onion and garlic and drink vodka every morning. So they can't differentiate smells. I couldn't stand these awful smells for a very long time.

So, the bears come with wooden platforms on their backs. People get upon them and go to work. It can take 2-3 hours to get to work. It's a barbaric procedure. But it is faster than walking. Indeed, the big letter "M" atop all subway stations stands for "Medved" that is Russian for "bear".
