The name of this man is Alexander Glazkov and he fancies traveling so much. For the past decades he visited lots of countries all round the world. This summer, while sitting in the Russian bath-house a crazy idea came
to his mind. He has everything – money, lots of time and most importantly he has desire. And he thought why not to travel from Novosibirsk to Cape Town, RSA, by his van car? Yeah, surely. Why not?
Yesterday in Moscow there was held Parallel Slalom FIS Champions Cup. The annual event is carried out in Moscow already for several years, each year in November. The jump is a huge construction of 60 meters high, 37 meters wide and 210 meters
long (195/120/690 feet.) But there is one question, where did they get such an amount of snow for the event? Since this weekend weather wasn’t so cold, about 40 F, and snow was melting quite pacey in the streets of Moscow.
Deserted streets. Hardly ever one or two lonely pedestrians, with their faces wrapped in bandages, hastily cross the street and hurry back to their houses, afraid to spend an extra minute outside. They won't touch each other with a ten-foot pole, won’t talk to each other even if they are good friends, they
just hustle by each other. People are in panic. People won’t get out from their homes, their TVs and radios mutter dark… something about a disastrous epidemic… something about fatal outcomes… something about the cure... None of these “somethings” sound assuring anymore.
