Μεγάλη διαδήλωση στη Μόσχα [Aug. 10th, 2019|10:47 pm]

Meanwhile, as of now we've already got three articles about this shit on just one platform: one, two, three.

Yeah, I'm reading all this to improve my Greek skills by the way. For no other reason.

But, judging by the numbers of shares (zero in all three cases), nobody here gives a shit.

Neither do I.

I think that Putin may be an evil maniac, a corruptioner and even a war criminal, but if you have to dress like that on August 10th, what's the point of living in such a country anyway?

Maybe those Russians will overthrow their old Putin and finally elect a new one, maybe it is possible, nobody will give a shit because in any case they are unable to overthrow their climate. And this is absolutely definitely, there is no "maybe" here.

So, what's the point?

As for Athens, today was a sunny hot day with temperature about 34-35C, but I'm still ill, caughing etc.

But even in my miserable condition I don't have to wear an overcoat, hat and trousers on August 10th.

Poor fucking swines.

It was impossible for me to live in such conditions, if temperature is below 20C I can't even call this life at all.

And I think people should not live their life like that, they are basically losing their human qualities.

Yeah, there are Scandinavians, Eskimo etc, but there are not many of them, as there are not many freaks of any other kind. And some freaks will always be present on Earth, in small quantities, of course, and that's what I want to say about Scandinavians etc.

But yes, what I want to say is that all these people are absolutely hopeless, and to me they are like, I don't even know, some kind of aliens? I may look at them with a certain amount of interest and empathy, but to be fair it is like watching a TV-program about life on another planet, which is far far away and which you will never visit again...

Vilnius [Aug. 9th, 2019|02:35 am]

So, I've returned from Vilnius.

Unfortunatelly, the journey was not that great: the weather was ideal, hot and sunny and no rains, but on the first day of my stay I fell really ill for unknown reasons, and had to stay in bed for a whole day. I thought I would die.

I still haven't completely recovered, but now I feel much better, I only lost my voice, cough a little and I guess I still have too high temperature. But at least I could go to Rammstein concert in Riga.

A journey from Vilnius to Riga by bus takes four hours, and four hours back.

And Ryanair doesn't fly to Riga, that's why I had to fly to Vilnius.

Vilnius is ugh it's a beautiful barocco city where everyone speaks Russian.

Yeah, litearally.

It was a strange experince, many people wear clothes as if 90s never ended and speak Russian, they look like real gopniks, I've forgotten when I've seen so many gopniks in Russia itself, it seems like in Russia their time ended ten years ago at least, but Vilnius is still full of gopniks.

But all this gopnik shit happens in barocco landscape.

Everything is barocco.

So there they are, these true gopniks in barocco landscape, strange Latvian language that sounds like nothing I had heard before, hordes of Ukrainians...

As for Riga, it was fun.

After the concert all the restaurants and cafes etc in the city center were full of Rammstein fans and Rammstein music was playing everywhere.

It was like the only thing that exists in universe is Rammstein.

I've been to many Rammstein concerts (about twenty as of now, I guess), but never before have I seen anything like this.

Rammstein fans and Rammstein music was everywhere and nothing else but Rammstein music and Rammstein fans.

The bus station was full of Rammstein fans too.

I felt a certain nostalgy when I saw buses going to "Sanktpēterburga" and Russians with their fucking Russian passports and fucking visas.

Poor fucking people lol.

By the way, it was my first visit to Lithuania.

So...

Earthquake [Jul. 28th, 2019|07:35 pm]

[Tags|]

They say we had another earthquake here in Athens about half an hour ago, but this time only 4,1 on the Richter scale.

Well, tell you what: in Russia I used to live in a building which stood maybe 50 meters away from tram lines.

And sometimes when a tram passed nearby, there was some slight but perceptible vibration.

And this earthquake gave me the same feeling these trams passing by gave.

I didn't even completely understand it was an earthquake.

So earthquakes are fucking shit I guess.

Σεισμική δόνηση 4,1R σημειώθηκε το απόγευμα της Κυριακής στην Αθήνα. Το επίκεντρο του σεισμού εντοπίζεται 5 χλμ. βόρεια της Μαγούλας και το εστιακό βάθος υπολογίζεται στα 4 χλμ., σύμφωνα με προκαταρκτική μελέτη του Ευρωπαϊκού - Μεσογειακού Σεισμολογικού Κέντρου.

2019 German Grand Prix [Jul. 28th, 2019|06:05 pm]

So this had been the best F1 Grand Prix in years, I think.

Well, I personally can't remember anything similar which happened during past five years or so.

Absolutely crazy.

Fuck Mercedes, fuck Ferrari, everybody is tired of these fuckers, although obviously for different reasons lol.

Even now F1 can be interesting sometimes.

And the third podium for Kvyat in his entire career.

Third place like in China 2016, but this time he was driving for Toro Rosso, not for Red Bull.

Fucking unbelieveable.

Katowice [Jul. 22nd, 2019|11:08 pm]

So, in the centre of Katowice, right in the middle of the pavement, there is an artificial creek entirely packed in granite, about five meters wide and maybe twenty cm deep, with waterfalls-like steps, and on the banks there are palm-trees in pots, and chaise lounge-type chairs, with concrete base and wood covering, so that you half-lying half-sitting in them.

And I'm sitting in one of these chairs right now, under a palm-tree, listening to creek gurgling and using free wi-fi.

So that's how great Katowitce is.

The weather was nice today, something like 24C, sometimes sunny sometimes not. But tomorrow cold and rains are expected.

I went through the city, from one end to the other, it is pretty small. Looks better than Plovdiv, there are large magnificient "imperial" buildings here and there, both old and modern, so it doesn't look too provincial.

In fact at some points it reminds German cities or even Helsinki.

But still there are signs of 80's and 90's here and there, especially outside of the city center.

But it is noticeable they are trying to keep up with the time. This is definitely better than what's going on in Plovdiv.

And Poland is noticeably richer than Bulgaria.

Many fountains, everything is relatively clean, houses are not falling apart (well, most of them), the roads are OK, there are even bicycle lines here and there etc.

And there is a cafe chain "Zabka" (which means "toad"), and why I am talking about it is because these Zabka cafes are everywhere, in the city center you will meet Zabka every three hundred meters, literally. Unbelievable.

And there is a fountain toad in the city center.

Seems Poles like toads very much for some reason, they are everywhere - cafes, fountains, toys, pictures.

Well, anyway, Katowice doesn't seem that bad after all.

As for the Greeks, met them already three times here.

The strange thing is Poland looks not that bad, even provincial Katowice in some places looks better than Athens, and still Greece is richer country and Poles come to work in Greece, not vice versa. There is even a Polish church in the center of Athens.

And yes, I've already found a leaflet offering help in finding job for Ukrainians lol. It is in Ukrainian by the way and I understood it completely lol.

So, I'm in Katowice.

Today is Sunday and I arrived quite late, at 9 P.M..

And I had no zloty.

So, although the official exchange rate is 1 Euro = 4,2 zloty, I had to change my Euro at rate 3,1. 3,1, yeah. That was the only option, in the exchange booth at the central railway station. Everything else was closed due to Sunday and late hour. And I had to change 50 Euro.

So basically I was ripped off for 11 Euro.

Fucking, fucking shit.

As for Athens, I had seen there places where exchange rate was 3,2, not more. So I decided to take my Euro to Poland.

I can't even describe how much I hate countries which don't use Euro.

Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Poland, Sweden...

Fucking, fucking shit.
