Yes, but at least we can flush our toilet paper..........
I try not to go places where human rights violations are part of their mantra.
@fushingfeef Interesting way to look at it, for certain.
I heard a radio show on BBC2 here today. Homosexuality is treated as a heinous crime by some people "over there". Gay people are enticed to meet someone, then beaten up, assaulted and harmed. One guy was beaten by a group, urinated on and had his head shaved. Because they are homosexual. This happens everywhere I'm sure, but this was a radio show highlighting the plight of being homosexual in this country. I actually had the thought fly through my head that I wouldn't go to a country that did that to watch the games. But then, where on Earth is there a country where there is no prejudice? I bet we'd struggle.
OoO, is that somehow related to Sochi? Just not sure of the context.
An ABC reporter found the bee in his honey at Sochi.
Here is a disturbing quote from an article in The Wall Street Journal
I've read several books on the Beslan tragedy Lina. I can't imagine what the parents must have went through during and after that ordeal. Stay safe. You still live in a fascinating country. Visiting Russia is on my bucket list.
I love watching the ski jump competition. Those are some brave athletes.
I also like the biathlon. The rifles they use are highly modified .22 cal with no scopes. Trying to shoot when your heart rate is up like that is challenging.
I love the downhill skiing too.
I will be watching on TV.
I watched the figure skating today. Absolutely loved it. The Canadian pairs team.....Their skate brought out so much emotion.
I also enjoyed watching that snow-boarding today, the new one. (The one Shaun dropped out of.)
Tell me if you decide to visit Yekaterinburg by any chance, you will get a good guide!
You make it sound like it's a bad thing......
