Are you ready for international business?

Several days ago I saw a very interesting business card. The translation was so awful that I can't miss the chance to share it with others. I already tried to call the owner — but Holidays no one took the phone.

Feeling Good

«Feeling Good” is a song written for the 1965 musical ”The Roar of the Greasepaint – The Smell of the Crowd” (about the gap between the upper and lower classes of British society in the 1960s). The musical was not a success and would have been long ago forgotten if not for it's “Feeling Good” song, which is popular for half a century already.

New Video Review of Cafe Brigantina in Sochi

Friday night, Head Chef and Owner, Martial Simonneau sat down with me in his Cafe Brigantina. We talked about food, his plans for the future and then I tried and reviewed several items from his menu. Please take a look at the video:

Sochi Train Station Video

Trains stations are much more central to the life of a Russian city than anyplace in America. So on my tour of Sochi's central landmarks, I included this important transport hub. Please take a look and share my video!

Yesterday I saw the advertisement of The Weight Watchers programme (UK) and found it really inspiring and uplifting.

The Weight Watchers programme (WW) www.weightwatchers.co.uk/plan/index.aspx is a sort of mutual aid movement — something like well known “Alcoholics Anonymous”.

Bruce Talley's series on Sochi, Russia #1

На прошлой неделе обсуждали с Брюсом Талли тот факт что уже 2012 год, а Сочи абсолютно не готов к приему иностранных туристов и вообще людей говорящих на английском!
Совместно с ним, мы решили создавать еженедельный видео-журнал для иностранных туристов, который будет показывать город Сочи глазами англоговорящего человека! Что то вроде видеогида по основным объектам иностранного гостеприимства города!

Sochi, Russia’s Olympic city and pulsing beach resort, sits between the Black Sea and the lofty Caucasus Mountains. In this video series, American Bruce Talley explores Sochi, reviews the hotels and restaurants and chronciles events in this boomtown of mountain sports and beach living.
