Confessions of a Debaucher…

Confessions of a Debaucher…
Instead of studying I’m blogging… but who doesn’t know that? Maybe it’s a good way to keep calm an distract oneself from the nervousness that comes with the exams. But first of all I would like to say Thank you, for all your sweet and honest comments on my not so happy post about Moscow. For those of you who are interested in knowing what exactly annoyed me on my trip there, read my answer to Eden-Avalon’s comment here :bling:
I hope you don’t mind that I’m showing you something else between the Moscow entries. Today I went through the coutless picture folders on my desktop and discovered some food pics I haven’t showed you yet.


What is your favourite food? Do you think that it’s true that colorful food is healthier than plain food? I like to cook colorful because it looks nice.. & healthy! But I don’t know if it really is that more healthy than a plate full of plain Sauerkraut. :tongue: I really do enjoy eating different things though!


But now comes the serious part of this post. As I wrote in a previous entry, I would like to write more frequently and shorter posts. Because the more I write and post, the easier it gets! Entries are done so much quicker for me when I’m writing more frequently and I have to think less about how I would like to express myself. Also, I take pictures of a lot of things but many of them are never published because I think that there’s not enough to write about them. Pictures however, are often more expressive than words so long story short, ( nyahahaha have you seen that Sout Park episode with the ziplining too? :nope: ) I will try to update nekoblog more often and with tiny glimpses into my everydaylife.

Totally dopey looking ねこちゃん :kitten:

I hope the food porn didn’t made you drool too much…

byebye,

PS: I didn’t made all the food! Only the two first pictures and the wok vegetables are my work.. :nope:

Can someone teach me how to love this city?

Can someone teach me how to love this city?
I’m already getting bored with the Moscow entries and I don’t really know what to tell you about the trip because I didn’t like it too much and I’ll just end nagging about how hard it was. I’ve never been homesick in my entire life until my trip to Moscow. I hope nobody gets offended while reading this. :arigatou: I’m sure Moscow is full of nice and hospitable people but we weren’t too lucky. It’s quite embarrassing but I even had to cry and didn’t want to leave the hotel room anymore because we were having such awkward and unpleasant sutuations. I think it’s definitely better to know someone who lives there and can show you the city like a real Moscovite. :boxkitten:


The second day Silvankun had a wonerful idea. We took a boat on the Moskva river like real tourists do and enjoyed the sight of this huge city with its mind-blowing buildings from the water. The city really is impressing but I would never want to live there. I’m quite sure though that I would have loved everything else in Russia. It’s too strange to read these words myself because I always said that I feel comfortable everywhere but this time I wasn’t crying because I had to leave (like I usually do) but because I was going back to Switzerland. The next time I’m going to Russia I’m definitely going to see the country and not the city of Moscow. Ok, I know it must be unusual to read such harsh words but that’s how I feel. Nyaaa sorry guys, I’m in a really bad mood so I shouldn’t keep writing.. :sigh:
If you’re interested in looking at the pictures though, you should “read on”.. But don’t expect to see the classical pictures of buildings everyone knows… I like to take pictures of unusual things :baloonpanda: Most of you probably already know that. :hehe:

Cats of Moscow

Cats of Moscow
I’m back already! :totorosmile:
Originally I had planned to do three entries about Moscow, one for (almost) each day but there are so many pictures that I had to split them even more. Furthermore I just thought that the cats of Moscow deserve an own entry. If you ask yourself why, just look for yourself… :omnom:


This lively backyard was probably the cosiest place I’ve been in Moscow. A small cat empire in middle of a huge city. There were no other intruders except of us, a a sloppy and overprotective dog and some birds. But they seemed to respect each other and to get along together. Silvankun even started to play with the tiny ones that were obviously very curious. I think cats look different from country to country but these really impressed me. Some looked like small lions and they behaved so hierarchical! :bang:

*Nyaaa* do you see the tiny black cat in front of the big dog? so cuuute! The dog didn’t do anything…

The atmosphere in that backyard was truly special and I enjoyed very much to absorb some of it. It was the ideal place to relax for a while from all the traffic and rush that was going on outside that yard. At some point however, the overprotective dog started barking and lured out an old Russian Babushka who started shouting at us and kicked us out.
