Off To Russia

Next week i will fly to Sankt Petersburg to join the 2017 Druschba/ Friendship tour,
which already started last Sunday in Berlin. While trips to other parts of the world
meanwhile became somewhat of a routine, Russia and Belarus are complete new
territory and i must admit ,i am exited and look forward to a great experience shared
with other likeminded folks, although i usually travel staunchly by myself.

After  prestudies i am prepared to encounter cities with great architecture,fantastic
landscapes and people steeped in their tradition and respecting their many centuries
old culture, something going more and more amiss in the "Western Community of
Values", where Sigmund Freud's old quote " The loss of shame is the first step to cre-
tinism" can be observed in an increasingly dramatic manner in a socitey completely
losing its compass with inept leaders, who instead of creating friendships with the
Russians can't stop drooling about sanctions, thus echoing Big Brother - ridiculous !

Writing of leaders, this is Alexander Saldostanow, boss of the biker gang Night Wolves
and according to the dirt slinging German tabloid BILD the most dangerous rocker in
the world - i hope i get to see him along the way.

Here is a great video from last years 2016 Druschba tour

I still want to thank travel agent PANEURASIA for their support and finnish off with
a great piece of music, before quoting Mark Twain.
