So.. spring is coming!!! Yay!! And as such, we start seeing some green color in our dearest in-the-middle-of-nowhere Tyumen (siberia). The scenery becomes more lively and no longer only white anymore ๐Ÿ™‚

One thing that we didnt expect coming together with the spring though, is the aggressive attacks from all those mosquitos army!! Lots of them!!ย  They are huge, crazy, and starrrving (probably as a result of fasting during the winter).ย ย  I was small enough already but those mosquitos seem does not have any mercy. Big or small, as long as it has some sweet blood, its all the same. It means : “MEAL time!!” for them, resulting in HUGE red itches all over my skin!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I should admit, the mosquitos here are even worse than their families in tropical countries… :/

Anyway.. i wasnt planned to bitching about the mosquitos here. So, spring here, and the city get prettier like this :

And as i mentioned in my previous post bout Moscow, Russia is celebrating their 65th years victory over Nazi in WW2.ย  And therefore, even Tyumen also has some thing going on regarding that.ย  People participated in a parade!!ย  They dressed up in military suit, also there are military cars running around, and even hillarious costumes seen as part of the parade.

Cool army! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Awesome grandpa in military soldier suit

This friendly russian even offer to wear his funny head and waving excitedly when we took his pic ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, we happened to see people dressed up in a costume that i dont even know why its part of this parade, like those below :

1 bride and many grooms?

Ok.. this one make me wonder if i got lost into a maid-cafe Japan..

And a bicycle race!!

Anyway.. it was pretty lively and interesting. And as such, people are lined up in a such excitement to enjoy the parade ๐Ÿ™‚

Even cats try their best to see the parade!
