Bureaucracy in Russia is ******!
I think I …
I think I made it …
Still hasn’t hit me yet but I have this piece of paper that says all my running and finding and discovering and doing, and redoing, and reredoing and rediscovering and finding out I’m back at ground zero and starting over the finding and discovering wasn’t gone to waste. Even though it came close to it many, many times.
And none of it would of been possible if not for Amazing luck and people made of Gold!
Bureaucracy in Russia……….. Is F****D!
To say the least. Sorry for the foul language, but there really isn’t any other way to say it.
It’s the most complex puzzle of finding the right people and places, getting the right documents and filling them out properly, which tends to differ from person to person. Won’t be going into details about the process since today, Today we celebrate!
I will give a full account of what it takes since its honestly an accomplishment and something I need to share with you readers so you get a taste of the magic.
By now you must think my view of this country has begun its downward spiral, but quite the opposite has happened.
Bureaucracy aside, I was forced to witness one of the most beautiful parts of Russian culture. Something that I didn’t expect from anyone but my closest relatives, I got from people I have never met before. The support and help I received was not only unexpected, but also necessary to a degree where my struggles would of all been useless without it.
The art of the Favor.
My next post title.
Literal translation: from the soul.
A saying in Russia that translates to something coming from the bottom of your heart. A saying that applies to good and bad situations. Another gem here in Russia; if someone tells you off or says some thing nice with emotion. You know it’s real, and there’s no beating around the bush, the straightforwardness is a breath of fresh air. Your never left guessing. No BS so to speak, people just don’t have time for that. Considering how short our lives really are, it’s a beautiful thing.
Ill be back very soon to update on the subjects mentioned. I will be leaving the country and my wife behind for maybe 3 months so I might not have enought time to post too much. I have less than a week left so you can maybe understand where I’m coming from.
Not to worry, I will share everything I can with you in the near future, wasn’t sure at first but I now see there’s a ton of things to talk about and the only way to experience it is to live it for yourself, or get a glimpse through written testimonials which I am now proud to be a part of.
