"in Russia BMW drives you"
But I just returned yesterday from 2 weeks in Kiev and surrondiing areas. Not my first trip. No real middle class there just rich and poor mostly. In Kyyiv and Moscow Etc if you have a nice car you can almost drive as you please. I see men and women driving on sidewalks, doing 50 or 60 MPH down street while some police watch and nothing happens. Money equals powers equals nice cars and drive badly.
Sad too, hard working intelligent and educated people. In the villages they make less than 300 a month.. In kyyiv where it costs more, to live 400-600 a month.
BTW gents the most beautiful and feminine women in the world. Not like most brutish, heavy, selfish and flat mean western women.
