I found a video that encompasses the soul of Russia and will make you stop! It will stir something inside you and cause a yearning. A Russian folk song has a sad intertwining depth that can bring a tear to the eye. Yet at the same time it will entice the person to grasp and embrace a song that you can not even understand the words to.
Watch the video, better yet close your eyes and listen to the video. You will find that your senses will extract the desired properties and that Russia has a soul that goes back into history farther than you knew…
The name of the song is ‘Tonkaya Ryabina’, which means ‘Thin Rowan-tree‘ in English.
The song is about woman’s mourning for her loneliness.
We did an article on McDonald’s on Windows to Russia.(Link) It was lacking a good video to show McDonald’s in all her glory in Russia!
Well we found that video and it really is very interesting. So 20 years ago, McDonald’s was a world that had never been seen or experienced in Russia and to many it was the “Cat’s Meow” so to say!
That has all changed now and as we travel Russia we find McDonald’s in the most interesting places. One time we had traveled by train out of Moscow about two hours and all of a sudden we stopped at a little town that had a McDonald’s with in site of the train station. How is that for cool?
