Moscow traffic jams bother people of the city a lot, at least according to what they say. So Russian blogger Ilya went under the ground into Moscow’s metro to avoid his next jam. There he encountered what might be called “an underground traffic jam” with people standing in line for hours to get back to their homes after the workday is over. “You can spend more time in a subway traffic jam than in a jam on the surface!”, says Ilya. Let’s see what he saw there!
“I know some people that like the metro”, recalls Ilya, “they are constantly telling me how comfortable it is. However those people can’t even get dressed well and always look depressed and scared”.
“What an awful sight!”, says Ilya.
Sometimes you need to miss up to four trains until you can get into your train because the people before you keep getting into the train.
“There is no order at all! The more physically strong push away the weaker ones”. says the blogger.
“These people are happy they have got into the car!”
Then Ilya complains that his wallet was stolen four out of five times when he was going down into the metro.
“Use public transport they say, it’s safer and faster they say!”, says Ilya.
“Yes, having your own car costs money, but I prefer to pay that money and spend time in a traffic jam than have people tear my clothes, and shout at me in the metro. Please explain to me, why do you keep going on the metro?”, asks Ilya at the end.
However, no matter how distressed he sounds, it might be a clue that he is playing with his audience and the pictures he took from the underground are not that scary at all.
What do you think?
And thanks to Ilya for his photos for sure!
