Well, you know what they say about those long lonely nights cooped up together with other young men can do to a man.


Now, if only there were an Apache, a cop, a cowboy, a biker...

About OSOD's jokes with Russians and Ukrainians - I got used to it and do not mind anymore. :)
Russia and Ukraine are indeed very close countries, I have a lot of relatives from Russia - uncles, aunts, my grandmother was born there. It is just that within over 20 years after USSR collapse we deviated politically from each other so far that many of us do not feel comfortable when compared to each other. In any case, as to Russian-speaking community in Singapore, we do simplify things and call all of us Russians ourselves, until it comes to politics...

=======
An accident in Lviv: a balcony attached to a very old building built before Bolshevik revolution fell down and killed a guy. Old granny that is passing by saw the accident, exclaims:
- My God! Where are those authorities!? Not a single safe place to step in our city!
Police arrived, checking the dead person's documents. They see he is Russian. The same granny shouts:
- My God! So many Russians arrived! No place for a single balcony to fall!

I guess, Russian Sergei will be referred to as "Sergei", while Ukrainian Sergei will be referred to as "Sergiy" (my formal name, but it is the same - Sergei is Sergiy in Ukrainian) :)

Good to hear. I have never been there, but maybe one day after I return back to Europe.
Ukraine is hidden treasure in Europe. I know a lot about architecture and traveled a lot and I always read Skyscrapercity.

Nice Kyiv architecture

Also I want to visit crimea
