processed in some deserts and so on. Here are some photos of how the cranberry is being collected and turned into an extract in Russia, which is later being used in production of the above mentioned products.
23 Music Video From Georgia

Music Video From Georgia

This music video is from Georgia, ex-USSR country. It has been said that in Georgia average salary is $80 per month, $960 per year, and that's not a minimal, that's an average salary across the country, so a big fraction of Georgian people work in Russia. There are also rumours that during Soviet era more than half of
criminal leaders were from Georgia. Also there many areas of Georgia are not connected to central electricity system and every appartment in the house lives thanks to their personal diesel electricity generator. This piece of music video is from that far away country from the shores of Black Sea.
Landing in Airport of Moscow
28 Moscow From Bird Sight

Moscow From Bird Sight

Russian guy Letchik Leha works as a pilot in one of air companies. He sometimes makes photos right from pilot’s cabin when he as a pilot flies with a crew. I don’t know is he allowed to do this or not, but here are some of his photos. This is Moscow city at night and his landing on a heavy passenger airliner to one of Moscow airports – there are a few airports in Moscow which population is almost ten million people. By the way the flights above the
Moscow itself are prohibited by Russian law so all the airports are not inside the city itself but near Moscow and in order to make a landing pilot must make a right curve not to crossing air space of Moscow itself. Moscow planning is made in form of giant circles - there are three bigger circles - wide roads around the city so that you could find a suitable exit for yourself when you drive thru Moscow.

How To Make A Bread Basket From an Old Printer

Sometimes people use things in some other way than their direct purpose. This Russian guy proposes to use your old printer as a bread-basket or a box to store some medicines. He removed all the inside parts of the printer, disassembled it,
washed it with soap and then assembled but without inner parts. What he have got became a bread basket in form of printer, he probably puts it with some bread inside on the table when he serves meals at his parties.

Road Rafting

Just a few kilometers from Moscow city where people by cars worth of $1 million life is totally different. Some people living in Moscow may even not know how different it is, but it’s real and it’s there. On this photo just a small example of what happens in rural parts of Russia. Many villages are left by young people who move
to cities in a search of jobs and entertainment, some villages are populated with old people. Here is the glimpse of funeral – an old lady goes on some sort of wooden raft together with a coffin towed by a tractor, though there are some kids so not every young pair moved away from this village.

Kiev Tram Jam

We have seen a 24 hour traffic jam in Moscow a few days ago. This is something different - tens of trams a stuck in Kiev in the middle of the day, so all
the tram traffic was paralyzed. Many people advocate public transportation as a no-traffic-jam alternative. This time it's of no alternative.

Russian UFO House

Now here is another piece of Russian self made rural piece of architecture. This is a building in a form of a flying saucer, painted in Russian old style police car – white and blue. Inside one can see traditional Russian wooden
decoration and opposing it in style round windows and a… firewood furnace. It is not some highly-sophisticated zero gravity UFO engine but at least passengers won't be freezing during long Russian winters.
