In Vladivostok, East Russia

Monday April 27 – Vladivokstok: How do you measure the pleasure of a whirlwind encounter?

perhaps you count the number of inward smiles, beginning from when you first hear a new voice utter: “you will surrender to us because we have planned your schedule for you and you cannot refuse.”

perhaps you notice the frequency of sideways glances shared between allies who are being taken from photo opportunity to photo opportunity, helpless in the face of such a force of nature…

whatever the metric, you can only embody the image of exotic ‘other’ that has been projected upon self with its brilliant luster, and trust the standard.
