Let me introduce you Graciela- a woman in her 60, who dedicated a great part of her life to saving animals from cruel streets of Lima. This woman´s life isn´t easy at all. Just imagine living in one house with 40 dogs, each of them needs to be taken care of, recieve food and love. But Graciela is not about easy living or comfort, she is all about dedication and care! She wants to make a difference here in Lima where most of animals are living in horrible conditions and where most of people simply don´t care about it..

By the way Graciela is our neighbor. We are trying to help her with food for dogs and searching for new families for these pets. Still most of people in the street mistreat this woman. And I can´t stop wondering why people can´t understand that while helping each other we help ourselves! Why can´t we be more caring and helpful? This world would be a warmer and nicer place to live, wouldn´t it?!

As you see Graciela´s children (as she calls them) are clean and taken care of, but she is not able right now to feed all of them properly. Besides that she is not feeling healthy. So we put the dogs for adoption. It´s very important for us to find the families who love animals and will provide a good care for them! So if you know anyone who lives in Lima and is intrested in finding a new friends, please contact us !!!
You can also join our facebook group Help Peruvian Animals !!!

It is a beautiful early morning. I´m Peru. Away from my home…
While looking through head-lines in my favourite online “newspapers” I found some interesting stuff about Russia. Well, I´m belorussian, but both of my lovely parents are russian. This fact I guess makes Russia my second home-land… Whatever…
Here are some interesting articles about Russia I´d like to share with you!

This was the first article I read:
New Rules for Russia’s Cops: No Bribes or Wild Sex

What can I say? Russian police is well-known for its bad reputation: abuse of power, cruelty, corruption, “friendship” with criminals. It has been this way for quite a while already, so I have doubts about the success of this new code of conduct for the police, “the aim of which is to turn Russia’s police into polished professionals”. Well, good luck with this. I must admit though that there are those russian policemen, who choose the job with the willing to protect the country and its society, but it´s pretty much impossible for a healthy humanistic idea to survive in the corrupted and wasted environment of the police-office.

I hope the people who took those pictures are in good health today.

While researching for the second article about new taxi-business for russian women, I found out that to get access to any information on The Moscow Times online you have to subscribe. Ok. Lets see how it works in real time…
Well, it´s Russia, so… The Moscow Times “allows free access to all articles published in the last month”. BUT! “In order to read the full text of other stories, we require a subscription to the Article Archive.” And… “Subscription rates for non-residents are based on fixed rouble/euro rate which is 34,5 roubles for 1 euro”.
I guess I´ll just trust to my FREE norwegian source, which says that “A young, beautiful and drunk woman takes a taxi outside nightclub. Sometime later she wakes up raped and left in a park. The scene is unfortunately quite common for Moscow even amoung established taxi-companies. That´s why taxi for women with a woman behind wheel has become a new business”…

Another intresting thing about Russia is its obsession with fashion! Just check out this CNN report.

And that´s true: russian people, specially women, are so into “looking fabulous”, that no economical crises can stop them from spending money on clothes, high-heels shose, make up, hair and manicure.
More about RFW.

And here is the last but not the least news about Russian for today.
Many russian women still prefer abortion to prevention. Nothing else needs to be said.

Anyway Russia is not that bad. And I´d like to share its GOOD with you next time! So check up on me!

And one more rather funny and cute (maybe a little dumb) thing about Russia:
Moscow Girls Run Glamorous Race!

During 14 years the chiness woman has been adopting animals from the streets and saving
from restaurants, where dogs and cats meat is served. Now this 60 year old lady is living with more than 300 pets. She calls the animals her children. But those are the “children” who eat 200 kg food every single day. So the woman spent all her savings and still had to borrow more money from her relatives and acquaintances. Then she started collecting food rests from the schools in the neighborhood. But she still spends around 2000 $ per mounth for her pets. She also sold her property, something her family isn´t glad about. None of her relatives supports her decision. In the year 2000 the woman had to sell the house she had kept as a present for her son til his marriage. The son got upset and left the house. He came back to his mother though. But the rest of the family consider her to be mad. The neighbors of the woman are not happy with the animals collective, so she was pressed to leave from the neighborhood 9 times already. She has lived in the house for 5 years, but the neighbors run out of patience, and very soon the lady and her 300 pets have to start seaching for a new home house again.

The report is in norwegian, but the interview is in english.

Here is shortly about something I found in Aftenposten :
... in 2002 17-year old boy was buried in Vaalerenga church. His coffin was tagged by his friends, because the dead boy was a tagger (graffiti artist). It was just one example for non-traditional coffins that have been used for burials in Oslo. And even though the majority still prefers traditional burials, when a relative has got a special will one tries to fulfill it. So nowadays people also can choose amoung bigger range of coffins. “The possible reason for it is to make the whole ceremony more personal. The choice of coffins can be one of the ways to do it,”- says Gunnar Hammersmark.
Here come some coffin design offers from Svanholm firm in Trondheim

By the way the price of one coffin like this might be between 5000 and 10000 NOK
(02.03.2009: 1 USD = 6,75 NOK . Do the math!)
So… where one of those coffins might take us?
… to a better world or something ???
