I just like hockey. I mean not only ice hockey but bandy or Russian hockey! Unfortunately I live where you can’t see it live. That’s why every season I try to go to some match in another city. This time I took my favorite LC-A.
Bandy is a remarkable game which is playing outdoor air. The first match in Russia was in 1898, on March 8. The flowering of Russian hockey was in 50s-80s years of XX century. That time bandy was notable for its involvement. It became a “substitute” to football in winter. A lot of teams were all over the Soviet Union. There was a large attendance at all matches. Equipment of hockey players is minimal. Only ice, stick, skates and ball! It is a beautiful game which is the quickest in team sport.
For this I decided to go to Moscow for the final of the European Champions Cup match between “Dynamo” (Moscow) and “Västerås” (Sweden). The match was held in an indoor skating-rink at Ice Palace “Krylatskoye” in November 2009. No freak of nature can disrupt my plans. “Dynamo” won with a score of 4:1! I want bandy to be included in the program of Winter Olympic Games. Then many people could play and see this wonderful game!
P.S. There was a bandy team in the 70s-80s in Leningrad (St. Petersburg) called “LOMO”!

In the last decade she has spent in the USA, Maliha has stayed at six different cities in five different states. Currently, Maliha is based in Denver, Colorado, and "Transient Living," a new series in the Lomography magazine, documents her experiences and the ways that she has come to call this city her home.</i>

A hat is in the position to be noticed before any other item of clothing. Its shape and texture can immediately call to mind cultural associations. A cloche is to 1920s fashion as a picture hat is to the 1900s. The wide-brimmed or fur-lined variety, on the other hand, is more functional for tribes.
