Tu-154 preparing to depart

Oto aboard
Image
Yea, I might not look too awful, but I was sick (caught a cold the day before departure) and hadn’t slept the previous night – with a 24-hour trip ahead of me!

In flight over Russia

(admittedly I don’t have any titles – when it’s overcast, whatever you see below is rather nondescript)

There, the familiar terminal

Inside the terminal again. The wait is slightly shorter this time, but still 3 hours to waste

Bah! So close to freedom!

Now uh, as for the final flight… the sickness, exhaustion and nervousness got to me – and I didn’t have a window seat. I figured I had to put an end to it – so, I got drunk and fell asleep for a while :roll:

Montreal airport. The EXCRUTIATING 3 hour wait for a bus.

Sunflowers in Oto’s [Canadian] backyard

Radies and gentremen,

This concludes the Oto motherland trip!

Final call for any comments and discussion.

Hope you enjoyed it, or something :roll:

words fail me.

thanks again, many many thanks for sharing.

i really liked seeing the railroad museum and the steam locomotives.

and i think i liked the way your great-grandparents' graves looked before you straightened up. i want a place like that.

I like how some of the clouds on the return flight look so hokey that if I saw them in a movie I'd go on a rant about what shitty effects work it was.

Get a DeviantART account and edit some of those pictures some really have alot of potential. I' glad you shared them with us. I haven't watched all the pages (just the first 6 as for now) but the rest will follow soon. I know why I always wanted to visit Russia some places sure look like end time'ish.
