CE in Ekaterinburg

We arrive safely to Eka, not without sweatting it, literally. 30 hours in a train full of people in very little space. Hopefully we had some good experiences there, like the guy who was alone and Baris talk to, and then he was with us almost all the time, and even played the guitar with us, or like Natasha, a pianist russian girl whom I met and talk all the night and taught me some russian sentences :P).
The good thing was the reception... LBG Ekaterinburg was waiting for us with a cartel saying "Bullshit" and with Champagne!!! Incredible!! Thanks a lot!!!
And once here guess... yes!!! More vodka!! (Of course, after a good cold shower after the train :P) in a party at Doctor's house (bffff, what a house!!!) and then go to sleep.
Next day city rally and meeting Natasha to say good bye. Maybe I will see her again, who knows. During the city rally some "stupid/funny" activities were done (as always in BEST :D). Including some race with eggs, lollipop-condom exchange, dances in front of buildings... etc, and of course flamingo photos!! :P
BTW, this time some other "photographers" were with me (the reason I usually don't appear in the photos of the blog... is I'm taking the photo :P). We join together the whole family of a Canon series: 300D (me), 350D (Natasha), 400D (Yuri). We will see the results... ;-)
In the afternoon, appart of a boring museum where the organizers had never been :P we drank like in a botellon near the river with beer and then looking for a club where to go out. "El Dorado" was finally the place where to go out... and was a little crappy, mainly for the music and the people (most of them with sun glasses!!! O_O), but with some nice girls :P BTW, we have concluded that russians boys are too lazy to dance with their girlfriends. So you can see several girls dancing alone... but with boyfriend near them getting drunk :S Poor girls...
Today was Zoo!!! And incredible (maybe not too much after the weather in Moscow and St Petersburg), after all these days being too hot, this morning it rain a lot :S But then of course, the weather become good and hot again. Nice zoo with a lot of animals (photos coming), like siberian tiger, or hipo :P Sadly... not flamingos at all :S Just some similar birds, and even parrots... including one like Pirulo! (The parrot I used to have at my home). We went afterwards to the highest building in Eka (at the moment... and until they finish other building which will double this one :P).
In the afternoon some sports. Yes! We don't just drink and drink alcohol... we are healthy young people! :D So, some voleyball and everyone was tired :P Actually it was quite good and relaxing :) Now the shower is waiting for me, and then... another club, more like talking (and drinking, of course! :P).
I promise to put some more photos of these days. :)
