Week in Tallinn

Maria Minerva playing in Sõprus Cinema in Tallinn, Estonia.
Apparently she left her homeland to play in London instead. 




Preparing for film premiere in the same cinema as Maria Minerva was playing in the night before:

Premiere of three short films that my friends, with my help, shot/produced in the same cinema:



Me on the left. I had to give a little explanatory speech about the short films and what our company does and what our new projects are.  My speech was a little too short and messy since I did not prepare much and still was "tired" after Maria Minerva's party the night before...
The main star of the night, Lena Kudryavtseva



And finally, we decided to attend amateur Fashion show in one of universities in Tallinn:





All of clothes were designed by fashion students. I made a lot of photos but most of them were blurry...

Birmingham, London, demonstrations

UK, like some other Western European countries enjoyed some protests against Congolese election results; apparently they had two presidents elected at the same time, and now the country is a brink of another civil war. Demonstrators expressed their unhappiness with how UK government deals with this this issue. I am not sure if they want sanctions against Congo or repeat of Libyan scenario, but let's see what happens next. Some people in Belgium, during similar demonstration, died. I think no one got hurt in UK...

 Trafalgar Square, London


Hotel I was staying in London... Joking.
Still looks nice..

London seems like a nice place to live in, so I will try to move there as soon as possible. As I found out (after like two months of living here) Birmingham is considered as one of the worst places to live in England, at least that's what Brits told me when I was visiting Estonia. Interesting that no one told me this here in UK. Well, at least now I know. But it's not as bad as its reputation I guess, but lack of parks and greenery does make this place a bit depressing. 

The only park in Birmingham city center. Or the only one I remember now. And it's way too small anyway. Please, residents of Birmingham, have a demonstration for creating more parks in your hometown. From another side, there's a saying in Russian "в чужой монастырь со своим уставом не лезь", rough translation would be "don't go to another monastery with own rules". Who am I to tell you what to do, I am just a passer-by. Haha
