Interesting video from a bloke living in Sochi - Russia
« on: May 30, 2016, 01:11:51 AM »
Came across an interesting video from a bloke who seems to like Russia a lot. He works part time in a commercial school teaching English. Here he tells us about his life in Sochi, Russia:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqhAa-IlS-Q" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqhAa-IlS-Q</a>

His attitudes seem quite different to one of our regular posters who sometimes spends a little time there.

Here he is doing a video review of some place he stayed at in Sochi:

Might it be worth reaching out to him for his insights into life in Russia today? ;)

Seems like a likable enough fellow.

Apart from the Timmy Mallet specs!





Is it...?

..no it couldn't be!

Timmy is busy working in the UK. But there is a resemblance!

Hope he doesn't give up his day job to pursue making videos for a living.
Don't shoot the messenger, links to articles posted, don't necessarily reflect my personal opinion.

Well, apparently he only teaches English at that school in his spare time so he must have another occupation. But maybe he spends time with his wife?

Moby posted many times, that he is a pensioner living off his savings in retirement.

Considering his lifestyle, his pension is not going to last the rest of his life,
or he is doing very well financially. More than the members give him credit for.

I would suggest that he is not yet of UK pensionable age.

We don't know the details of anything. If he is going through a divorce and wants to remarry and found someone then in my opinion that is great. Divorce is painful but much less so if you have someone by your side.

His woman is a testament that this is untrue. You all say he is as poor as a church mouse. Do you really think he would go through all the time and expense for a beard just to counter you guys? Come on. His blood is as red as any of ours. Besides 'Dexter' always wore pink shirts and he was a complete hetro.
