    Default Natasha’s Adventures

    I thought this was quite a video. Russia, for the vacation of a lifetime.

    Fascinating. How to make a life walking on egg-shells.
    Thanks for posting, Lew.

    I've been watching her for a while. She mentioned going to Georgia in her last video.

    I know what it feels like to cross an uncomfortable border and how it feels to be culled at the gate. She described it perfectly. She’s an impressive young woman.

    There doesn’t seem to be another option for western oriented Russians. I suppose if you’re Jewish you can make your way to Israel. Russian emigrees will be a thing again, maybe like post Revolution but who will take Russians? It should be a consideration.

    I have her on my "must watch" list. She's a brave young woman. So many Russians have moved to Georgia and Turkey that the apartment rents have skyrocketed. I hope Russians are able to turn their country around.

    There seem to be rumblings and getting more public. Putin's position looks to be getting shakey. If he goes, they may be some hope for a more open and better life over there.

    This is the painful part of Russian sailors not being allowed to participate in ISAF regattas, or other athletes being banned from international events, because I am sure that if I met any of those folks we could sit down together and have a nice evening.

    She is a brave young woman and I have to wonder about her family situation at home? I pray that she, and they, stay safe and can one day get back to a time where she does’t have to leave her home to find peace of mind and rest for her spirit.

    She is from extreme south east Russia about 4000 miles from Moscow. Similar to me and most of the friends I grew up with leaving Mississippi, I think she felt that she needed to leave home to find opportunities even without the war in Ukraine. If you look at the Wikipedia page for her hometown, She is the only person listed under Notable people.
