Re: Crimea [Re: koods]
    #26402366 - 12/27/19 01:24 AM (7 months, 8 days ago)

Since the Shroomery is a bit slow this week, I'll bring up some small news.  Europe's longest bridge was opened in May of 2018 connecting Crimea to Russia, and they just finished the railway portion.  Putin was first to cross.



This is interesting because:

1.  I visited Crimea a few years ago
2.  I learned about the bridge's construction at a very intricate display at the GUM Mall at the Red Square in Moscow

The video ends with an ominous sounding voice saying that "Moscow has aggressively pushed the region (Crimea) as a tourist destination".  And it really is - it's an awesome place to visit if you ever get a chance someday. 

Haters are free to hate me now.  :smirk:


--------------------
I am in a minority on the shroomery, as I frequently defend the opposing side when they have a point about something or when my side make believes something about them.  People here get very confused by that and think it means I prefer the other side.

Perhaps I'm a bit vain, but I pay careful attention to my 'vote ups'.  Please feel free to 'vote up' a post that you like - I won't tell anyone.  :smirk:

It would be like a bunch of Americans moving to some northern Mexico community until they vastly outnumbered the original local population, and then calling it liberation when the USA military came in to annex the region because 80% of the people living there supported it.




Ah, so Texas.
