    Winston Wu Update

    I'm on Mr. Wu's mailing list as I admit that it's interesting to see such a twisted and paranoid view of Russia

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Update: I'M OUT OF RUSSIA ALIVE!!!!!!!!

    Dear all,
    Yep, that's right, I'm actually OUT OF RUSSIA
    ALIVE!!!!!! YES!!!!!! I didn't want to tell the list
    in advance when I was going to leave because I wanted
    to make it out alive first without doing anything to
    risk my escape. But anyway, I'm safe and sound in
    Vilnius now. Back to civilized society at last! Now,
    I can say whatever I want about Russia and the
    criminal behavior in the blood of its people (before
    anyone gets offended, let me tell you that I have a
    strong circumstancial basis for saying that) without
    any fear of repercussion! Now folks will hear the
    truth about everything in full detail and examples!
    There is so much more to tell!

    I feel like I've broken out of prison, with a huge
    weight lifted off my shoulder. The last few days I
    was waiting eagerly in anticipation for the day I
    finally vacate out of the neverending misery of life
    in Russia. I dreamed of it and how I would feel to be
    free when I finally got on the bus to Lithuania. It
    would be one of the happiest days of my life, and now
    that dream has come true, and so I'm glad to share it
    with you all. I feel so much more relaxed, safe, and
    secure now that I'm back in Vilnius with all my stuff.

    I gotta tell you though, if you ever thought winter
    was bad in the US, you haven't seen nothing yet. The
    winter in Russia seems to drag on and on forever, like
    it's 3 seasons long. It's not just the length of the
    Russian winter timewise that's bad, but how you have
    to endure it too. You see, back in the US, when
    there's a bad winter, at least you are able to spend
    most of it indoors at home, work, and in the car. But
    in Russia, especially in Moscow, you have no choice
    but to spend much of the winter WALKING OUTSIDE,
    trudging slowly through the snow, slippery ice, and
    nasty creepy looking streets, while enduring freezing temperatures, and creepy looking people on the street as well! How would you like all that? Most people don't have cars, so you have to walk everywhere you go, to bus stops, metro stations, and more. It makes everyday both mentally and physically tiring and aching.

    Now, add to the above the countless number of annoying
    and aggravating things about life, people, and service
    in Russia, and you get an idea of what I mean. It's
    all a neverending lingering state of hardship and
    suffering that seems to never end! It just seems to
    drag on and on, making you think all the time, "What
    am I doing here?!" and "When do I get the f*** out of
    here?!" And I also couldn't help but wonder, "How
    could God create such an all around miserable place
    like this?"

    This is especially all the more true in Moscow; life
    there contains the most stress in the most unpeaceful
    city, and it takes so damn long to get from one place
    to another. In a typical day in Moscow (even if
    you're there as a leisurely tourist) you have to walk
    a long tiring way through the snow from where you live
    to the nearest metro station (if you even live near
    one; some have to take a bus to the nearest metro
    station first!), then deal with the hustling crowds of
    the metro to get to where you're going, then walk a
    long way from the station you get off at to your
    destination. Then, at the end of a tiring day when
    you have no more energy left and you just want to
    relax at home, you have to repeat the same process all
    the way back! At the end of the day, your mind and
    body are just sore and aching! Imagine going through
    that everyday for months! You'd better be getting
    something damn good for putting up with all that, or
    else what's the point? Your spirits are going to go
    down fast. Now, add to all that the endless number of aggravating annoyances I've described in the past, and it makes you wonder if it's worth it to stay there.

    Now you should all have a better idea of where I'm
    coming from. I didn't decide to leave Russia just
    because I found Alina and had no more reason to be
    there. I decided to leave in large part because when
    I look at the big picture and what I put up with in
    Russia on a daily basis, I realize that it's a lot of
    pain and suffering for nothing. Any benefits I saw
    there before were dwindled by the constant stress on
    my mind and body that I had to put up with everyday.
    That, and the realization that Russian mentality and
    my mentality had too many irreconcilable differences
    for me to be suited there, made me realize that I was
    in the wrong place that I wasn't cut out for.
    Therefore, in the large scheme of things, I realized
    that I was enduring through a lot of suffering,
    stress, discomfort, and pain, for almost nothing - no
    benefit or reward was coming out of it. In other
    words, A LOT OF PAIN AND NO GAIN.

    Even my nasty Russian colleague at the gazette saw my
    condition there too, and constantly said the same
    thing about my life there being a lot of hardship for
    nothing. At least he was right about that.

    I just could not see myself enduring through more of
    all that, especially when I didn't have to. My
    sensitive mind and body just were not designed for
    such life in Russia. Still, I feel sorry for all the
    people still back there though, enduring all that,
    many without a choice. And especially for the
    Americans back there who have been living for years,
    such as the two Christian missionaries for example. I
    have no idea how they manage to endure all that for
    years, especially when they came from something much
    better.

    Anyway folks, I have A LOT to update everyone on! And
    I mean A LOT! So much has happened the last few
    weeks. There are some dramatic twists and surprises
    that happened in Yoshkar-Ola to tell you all about,
    and more recently last week, two incredible incidences
    of theft (one of which I was the victim of) that I
    experienced, which you wouldn't believe due to the way
    they happened. You may never look at Russians the
    same way again after you read about these two
    incidences. In fact, you may be both repulsed and in admiration of, these Russian criminals, after I tell you how they pulled off their craft.

    I haven't written any updates in a long time cause
    I've been going through a lot, and I've been focusing
    my energy on finally getting out of Russia alive, so
    that I can relax and say what I want in total freedom!
    I think I will write an update about the two robbery
    events first, and then about what happened in
    Yoshkar-Ola. AND..... and I will probably be
    releasing out to everyone those two classified top
    secret updates I mentioned before, though they may
    damage my reputation, cause it may not matter anymore
    (you'll understand why when you read about everything
    that happened).

    Ok well that's it for now. I hope I've reved up
    everyone's curiosity. Stay tuned.

    Glad to have escaped alive to freedom,
    Winston

    He isn't repugnant enough by himself but that you see a need to distribute his insufferable messages for our viewing displeasure?? Why oh why?

    Anyone who wants to view his inane drivel need only to visit WayToRussia for insight into all of his cretinous hijinks. Please restrain yourself in the future from forwarding his emails to Expat.ru. We'd really rather NOT know.

    Name one!
    I want to die like my grandfather - smiling in his sleep. Not screaming with horror, like his passengers.
