Moscow, Petrovka, 38. One of those Moscow addresses that everyone in the USSR knew from childhood, as in Britain they know Baker Street 221B :) Previously, there was a Moscow criminal search, which very often figured in a detective movie. Now - the same thing, only under a different, more bureaucratic name.

In general, I am depressed in Russia by the growth of bureaucratization of names, mass bureaucratic style at every step. Even on the bus you go, social advertising - "this can lead to the creation of an emergency!". No, just to be "can cause an accident". And so it is everywhere.

Day of Pioneers

- Posted in Balancer's Blog (EN) by with comments

On this day, May 19, the Day of Pioneers was celebrated in the USSR: D The Pioneer Organization in the USSR is something of the type of American scouts, only it had coverage all over the country and with ideological overtones. I completely forgot this date, if it was not remembered in Telegram - it would not have occurred to me :) Under this case - photos, which are exactly 35 years old (+ month) - April 22, 1983. On the photos - the day when I was accepted into the pioneers :)

It rains. Photographed now from the balcony :) Quality bad, so that the drops are not smeared, I had to shoot on ISO3200. And in addition - a small crop. But it's still interesting :)

A little walk

Yesterday I went with my daughter to the Cosmonautics Museum to perform the next stage of the school Olympiad. But there was a HUGE queue at the entrance. I had to give up going to the museum and just climb the snowdrifts :)

Flowers on March, 8

- Posted in Balancer's Blog (EN) by with comments

My wife was returning home from work. At the entrance of the house two drunken guys gave her two huge bouquets of tulips. And in every door handle in the apartments of our house - the flowers are stuck :)

This, apparently, the people continue to celebrate the women's day, the 8th of March :)

Global warming

- Posted in Balancer's Blog (EN) by with comments

Last night I burned myself to the central heating battery. I took an IR thermometer and measured the temperature. 94.0 °C (201.2 °F). The municipal services decided to resist frost, the promised weather forecast. Heating system in my house is old, the degree of heating is not regulated. He called the communal service, they answered that it was normal. We have to open the windows to the street and warm the atmosphere. Russia is a generous soul! :)

In ancient times, the valleys of Dagestan were too valuable a place to settle them. There are few arable land. Therefore, people settled in the mountains, in places unsuitable for farming. At the same time it helped create additional protection from attacks.
