...sad topic...

Sometimes i'm feelin sorry for myself for living in my contry *so unpatriotic*

i'll try to write something good... but my english isn't perfect...

25/10/2006 there will be conference or something with president... for a week all people can ask questions by phone, sms and massages in this site ! The most interesting questions will be answered!
well, i don't believe!!!
I also ask a question.... here is summary:
The priority project for Russia now is mortgage loan... if i'm right in banking terminology....
i have good salary... about $500... i think it is rater big for Sochi
So i cant afford to by a 2-room flat, because it costs more then $100000
For example, in the house on the picture (the beautiful one! 18-storey house) 2-room flat costs from $220000... depends on the storey....
anyway.... if i ever desided to take a mortgage loan and buy a flat not_in_the_center and not_in_good_condition -- costs about $100000 -- i would be for it 135 years!!!
loan charge - 14%
sad... i'm very sad today....
oh, i'm sure that president will never answer my question.... authorities in Russia love to answer questiond, which were prepared for the by their deputies!!!
i forget to write about renting a flat... renting of 2-room flat csts $550 - more then average salary!!
i wish i were a bird living where i want....

i live here all my life and get used to all this national qualities.... but sometimes i can be grumbler ;)
