I’m in love with this photograph.
Meanwhile, in Russia…
would be more fun with more snow
wheres the vodka?
it’s in the old woman’s hand you idiot.
Not a very accurate picture of Russia at all..
I’ve been there. As an FBI Agent on a mission to teach and learn. Everyone got so drunk on Vodka each night it was not possible to teach or learn. We did about a tenth of what we were assigned and our leaders were not pleased with us. Yet it is impossible to refuse to drink with them and impossible to convince them that drinking is not on the agenda. One of our leaders went there to investigate our failure and returned to have all the letters of censure removed from our files. He claimed he still had a hangover a week later.
Man, do those people drink! Each of our comrades in training drank a fifth or more a night and went balls to the wall each day beating the shit out of the civilians they arrested. We American agents, in our black suits, couldn’t do much more than puke and puke and puke, and stumble around getting in the way because we couldn’t see.
