fish out of water...
« on: 14:57 27-Jul-2017 »
Watch as an American from San Francisco with limited Russian language skills moves in with a local family near the Sea of Azov, eradicates English from his life, and is immediately thrown into village culture outside of his comfort zone.

I know what you mean, because I feel that way about the Marshutkas (taxi vans), but I actually prefer the older trains because you can open a window.   I rode on one of the new trains and hated it:  flat screen TV playing ads the whole way on a loop; no fresh air (felt like a mix of treated air and farts).  It was relatively quiet in the cabin, but I prefer the klang-klang-klang of the old trains.

I like these types of train rides were you can chat in the hall with people and walk up down; look out the window.
