    And one picture I've accidentally meet on the web. Soviet and American soldiers together in Germany 1945. I like this attitude.

    I wanted to go to Volgograd for the 75th Anniversary, but....I like that people show photos of relatives who fought in the war. I like the idea of the ribbon of St George.

    It's not about anniversary, it's about bravery, honor and unbelievable sacrifice. So I think one day you'll come to Volgograd without crowds and big noise and just sense something that will make you like a brother for these soldiers remaining in past time. And you'll understand the importance of some simple things that aren't valued in our modern life. Good luck.

    This policeman didn't like my bent license plate. But another guy didn't have any so I'm not so bad :-)

    Ice-cream was very tasty and without chocolate so it's not an eskimo pie, we have nothing against the eskimos. This is very important in the light of the struggle for equality :-)
