Indian Spices on Radishev Boulevard in Tver

A couple of years ago Dima (the one who took over the Dacha & Horses project) told me that an Indian food is now available in Tver but I disregarded the story thinking good things just don’t happen in that hole. It turned out that the Indian Spices now does have an outlet in this gloomy city. It is Bulvar Radisheva 33. Open 10am to 8pm every day. Tel. +7 4822 574557.

Who was Radishev? Every city on the way from Moscow to St. Peterburg has a street named after Alexander Nikolayevich Radishev who earned this honour for travelling between these two places and publishing, in around 1790, his travel notes intermingled with criticizing the government, for which he was arrested, sentenced to be hanged, more >>

Oh no not “Russian brides” again

Oh yes, in the last year about half of my pittance was supplied by Russian bride seekers. So I continue on my quest to collect info that will help me to continue supporting my clients in their pointless quest..

Today I’m adding Alexander and his daughter Olesya (not to be confused with Alexandra from Kandalaksha and the Russsian Girl Friday Olesya, both of whom I regularly mention) to my list. They run a small old-school employment and marriage agency in Ryazan. Here is the address and contact details:

Ulitsa Chernovitskaya 6a, office 213/214
+7 4912 905014 (land line)
+7 906 544 7874

Not many matchmakers around who know their clients personally. Alexander and Olesya are a happy exception. Their little agency is a proof that time warps do happen. Highly recommended. The rates are very reasonable too.

But Russian only. And they lack aggression almost to the point of not caring. Don’t expect your e-mails to be answered in any detail if at all or calls returned. Realistically, you will need my assistance to work with them.

Is it just me, or..

Is it a sick old pervert looking at things through his crooked lens, or this figure does not belong to a playground?

Same feeling although, unlike with the giraffe, I can’t quite say what’s off with this one.

Another one coming up.  A figurine of an old man with a shotgun at the other end of playground. Half a bottle of vodka and a dead cat are begging to be added to complete the picture.
