And here come the Russians!


Walking around Busan and the Chinese quarter, I happened on the Russian quarter. I realised I could make more sense of the menus there, because they’re in cryllic. I thought I’d try out my Russian so I checked out the Удача bar.

I met a couple of likely lads, Alex and Sasha. Both were crab fishermen on their last night out before going back to sea for a month. We managed to talk about a few things, which was a relief. I’m now much more confident I’ll get by in Russian.

But before you get too impressed, I’m brutally aware now of how much Russian I don’t understand too!

True to form on what I’ve been told about Russian hospitality, they insisted on paying for everything. Dinner and beers. Спасиба!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
