Arm Wrestle Igor in Благовещенск

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Blagoveshchensk (Russian: Благовещенск; [bləgɐˈvʲɛɕːɪnsk])—if you can’t say it well hell, neither could I until the day I was leaving.  Nestled onto the northern bank of the Amor River (also named the Black Dragon River by who other than the Chinese) BLAG doesn’t fall flat but I wouldn’t book your honeymoon their either.  It does highlight what the Far East of Russia is… mostly not a lot.  Thus it was up to my host, Igor and former Russian army to have adjudicated an ‘arm’istice.  Winner Russia!
