18 April 2014. WTF! It HAS to be Russia…

00 'Walrus' in Krasnoyarsk. Siberia. Russia. 18.04.14

______________________________

It’s just a typical April spring day in Krasnoyarsk (that’s in Siberia, for them not in the know). Yevgeni Kheisin, 50, a member of the Cryophil “walrus” club, sunbathes as he sits on an ice floe on the Yenisei River. Most of the stuff told about Siberia is bullshit, but some of its RIGHTEOUS… this pic proves it! There be plenty of “walruses” in the world… not only Russkies do it… Finns just out of the sauna do it! Polacks do it! Chinks in Manchuria do it! Scandihoovians do it! Balts do it! Even Yanks in Coney Island and Brits at Tooting Bec Lido in South London do it! WTF! It HAS to be Russia… you can’t understand it with your mind, you can only accept it for what it is
