3 July 2013. Don’t Try This at Home… Even I’m Not Crazy Enough to Do This

00 Vladivostok. Russky Island Bridge. Russia. 03.07.13 – Resized


Here’s a Russian daredevil on the Russky Island Bridge in Vladivostok from the mainland to Russky Island (it is the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world). Even I’m not crazy enough to do this. I’ll pass on the pleasure… truly. If you wish to try this yourself, well, I don’t think it the wisest course that you can follow. However, suit yourself…

Russian Cuisine “Too Unusual” For APEC Russia 2012 Guests


The food service for the delegates of the APEC Russia 2012 summit, to take place on an island off Vladivostok early next month, will largely use Western European cuisine. Of authentically-Russian dishes, only a mere handful will be on offer. The problem is that Russian cuisine’s too unusual and too caloric for most of our APEC guests. The menu takes account of the fact that the delegates include many practising Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists. It also includes much seafood, so highly-prized across Asia and so easily-available in the Russian Far East. Of drinks, a range of wines and liquors will be available. The liquors will include the best of the best of our vodkas.
