I should keep writing and don’t leave it aside because i sense that this journey takes me back home, actually when a circle of travel closes, is where the good events are happening, and a new start begins. All we know that the reward comes in the end, although a TIP should be given at the beginning of the service, which means: To Improve Performance, in a better way!
Keeping though the spirit high, and the mind focus that the Ithaca might be found poor at the end gives me strength and power to continue and never focus at the end, only at the times that each journey lasts, on each day of a week, each moment of a day.
In this world are some countries like India for example, where when i visited i start to like her and enjoy my days, later during the hard times that any normal human will occur in this motherland… i begin hating her…then i reflect the same feeling again and again.. Remembered also that i regretted at one point that i came in her way…. later of course.. I mean, at the same time! ..I love her, respect and understand her so much and dreaming of getting back in her warmth arms!
Anyways… being here in Russia i see again that..
Emotions are frequently like that, running like the river, and such places, destinations away from your own time daily schedule, mind patterns and square happits, surely can make you feel differently.
Maybe at some point you will feel something similar with new travels, places, experiences.
Mama Russia and particular Moscow made me emotional many times, were days i did not know where and how to fit my self into such new world and wonder about my decision to visit during its cold times, where the snow was so strong that barely can see the horizon, and as the people say for that storms: the “sky is low today”.
Lighting red love hearts, hanging from the walls leading to underground shops around the historical town, expensive cars creating traffic during most times, strong wind makes your lift you jacket up to your nose and mostly look downwards while you increasing your pace and waiting for that great moment you will enter the best metros ( similar as museum ) in the world! Cold, cold, cold and I have been told that is spring now!
Being hungry and looking for a place to eat that you don’t have to spend 25-30euros for a meal that won’t make you feel full, is not eventually that hard, Moscow is expensive but definitely you can find what suits you if you have a good guide! Or the patience to discover it your own, while not many people answer questions, and English are not enough dwell into their life.
Strange feelings passing through me and I come to realize that most important of this country its those unique people, they strong core that connects them (i feel), they will look strangely at you, they will observe you smart enough, they won’t easily greet and they will keep their silence as their nature does during its long winter.
I heard the other day in the radio station that is the third country in the world that has xenophobia, and that made me recall my own experiences with the people I met here.
Certainly I met great people, and soon as they get to know you they love you and they open their heart, but remember those northern people are hard to crack! Also felt tired sometimes to be my self, felt no normal, a Mediterranean cheerful character, is just feels that is so cold for that!
to be continued..
