Lately the weather in Moscow city, Russia was showing some real signs of apocalypse. Firstly, it was extremely hot. All the previous weather records were totally beaten when it got almost 113F high - temperature that's normal for some Saudi Arabia but for sure not for Moscow. And by the way, as they say, it was much cooler these days in Egypt. Then, partially due
to that extreme heat lots of forest fires started, and the soils around Moscow are made of peat - which is cunningly burning deep down the surface producing some unpleasant intense smoke. So all that smoke went to the molten Moscow streets making them looking even more unreal. And then, the small tornadoes were formed and hit the downtown.
The Valley of Geysers and volcano Uzon caldera located in Kronotsky nature reserve in Kamchatka is a "favourite" place of many Russians to sacrifice their extremities touching the thermal springs with their fingers and wearing sandals despite all the instructions they get. They tread upon the green grass under which is the hot and chemically
aggressive mud. After such experiments burns of the feet heal tortuously slow. It is worthy of note that ONLY Russians show such curiosity, other travellers prefer to follow precautionary measures. But what about bears? They don't get instructions and the wood covering is not made for them. And they are always bare paws.
Yaroslavskoye highway in Moscow. These low-paid workers have been standing here for many years. They work for 500 rubles (16,5 USD) a day, often don't return home alive and at best aren't paid a ruble for months and finally turned out. They stand here from 5
a.m. to 9 p.m. and "attack" each car that stops. Local police arbitrary rules are becoming ledendary. The poor guys live in the neighbouring barracks and apartments 10-15 people in a single room paying 3000 rubles (100 USD) for a person.
