First I am not a Yank, I'm English and proud of it!!!
If you are american then john is quite an appropriate name for you!!!:-))) (Yanks dont understand irony or brit humour:-)))
I thought this was a board for people interested in Ukraine and travel and travel tips????this board is obviously not the place for you!!!! you better go to your MOB site..Try WWW.getarussianwifeforasadoldgit.com :-))))
I did not advocate "cheating" the trolleybus to the whole world. I just wrote what I saw, It is the fact this happens. I asked an Ukrainian friend about this and this is what they had to say "quote" "All ukrainians travel this way if the conductor does not come and ask for the money people dont pay they just just get on and get off". end quote!!!!! I am living here and trying to learn the culture and ways and I will try to learn this lifestyle and mabee if the opportunity comes I will take residence here for longer periods.
It takes time to learn how to integrate into a society, and I for one do not take this task lightly, It is very important that I return here many times and learn and try and understand this culture and way of life, it does not happen overnight. Thank you to Brama for being able to share all opinions good and bad, On this board there are new and inexperienced travelers as well as veterans, and together we have a media to learn and find out more about the ukraine and travel or do you think "Jonny boy" this board should be just about train timetables?????
I myself have spent most of my life travelling all around the world not only to Ukraine. For now, I am happy to return here as there is always somthing new to discover.
As for my Billiard friend "Diman" I had already met him in May he saw me in another Club last night and he said he will arranging for me to meet again another top player called Sasha. ( I also briefly met Sasha in June ) people have told me that Sasha is the best player in Vinnitsa, and for me it is nice to be welcomed by these lads. These are not just any old players these are the best. They have made me feel very welcome and I dont believe they have black thoughts or alternatine motives.
P.S If you dont want to read my post then just drive through, I dont mind:-)))
: you are not American, and I am pretty sure you're not.
: I would say without much doubt, that your new
: Russian billiards "friend" was indeed trying to hustle you, letting you win one!
: My big problem with you is you "advocated" cheating the sytem(trolley) for pennies to the entire world! I certainly wouldn't turn my back on you!
: Most of us don't need to vicariously experience your experience in Ukraine. We have all been there, done that. If you don't have something informative to say, just slime away!
: Oh, have a good trip!
