    so far not seen on my line. i must say hat off to the -diggers- who work there. there was a film on the news -Moscow24-. The plan is that when this part of building has finished every Muscovite can walk to his nearest metro. no need to use a bus or tram or taxi... ambiguous he is . our good mayor.
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....

    The Matrix! Every blob of protoplasm, in their own pod, with their own charging port!

    Actually, I'm kind of jealous. I love riding on trains. I once drove 200 miles to Wuppertal just to ride on that upside down train, and later that year, dragged my tourist parents to it.

    From the decoration on the train, something with, 75 years ago something happen?

    Not that long time ago I was waiting on my train, another train was entering the platform area, it was a steam locomotive with a crew in dirty uniforms the locomotive was smelling badly too, but what was the hit at the station, the new ласточка with crew in brand new uniforms, or the old dirty stinking steam thing? The steam locomotive was the clear winner, young girls were posing laying on the ground in front of the locomotive, everybody present wanted their picture taking in front of this old stinky, and now is gets strange, they wanted this pictures to be together with a random police man that was on his way to the local nearby police station, it was a sort of crazy moment, and nice at the same time.

    Get kinda fanty@mail.ru address, they filter spam themselves effectively enough, plus you can add domains.
