Case in Kuwait

If somewhere something was unpleasant during my trips, then the bad is forgotten or you consider disappointment as another adventure, another experience. There was case — now with a smile remember about him, and then it was serious. We arrived in Kuwait. Usually we start collecting the material immediately, from the aircraft to battle, without any acclimatization there. And here came — and nothing. Sit at the hotel. The hotel turned out to be good. All inclusive except alcohol. It is simply not. And what happened with you, selected at the airport — it is forbidden. Day sit in the hotel, the second, third — nothing. No permission for shooting, it is impossible without it, we will say — East. On the fourth day, it turns out that the shooting permits have not yet been received, and when will be obtained — Unknown. Guide was a woman. I had to explain that so normal people do not work: they are invited to make several films, and they themselves hold in the hotel. Even heroed her in English, a little bit. The lady was faced with the ministry that I was dirty… did not challenge, called. Caused to the ministry, threatened prison (they have for insulting weak sex) and deportation. But not planted and did not deported, but everything immediately moved from the place. The bureaucratic car creaked gears and earned. All you need to take off. This unpleasant case was more than blocked by a very pleasant acquaintance with Russian-speaking guys from North Ossetia. They worked in Kuwait instructors in the equestrian police, in parallel gave riding lessons to civil. Milestly people, we still support relationships. And one more terribly terrible case occurred in Bangladesh. But I can not, but still attract or special services Bangladesh will arrive…

I love New York, because it is a very positive city, with good energy. He is the same as in the movie. And people there, as if from the movies, go to the statists. It is easy and convenient to live — If there is money! Loved the night ceremonies Voodoo in the north of Benin. Megacked places are in the Philippines: Boracay Islands Beaches and Panay, the capital of Manila is good, there is tasty, cheap and many holidays. Magnificent Seychelles, Mauritius, French Polynesia. It is impossible to forget Madagascar — It is generally something… Especially the island of Nusi-Burach. In Madagascar, very beautiful women, beautiful only Russians.
