If you’re interested in meat cats, bear tatts, busted pipes and gypsy weddings then stride on inside folks. Russia is waiting.

Awesome photos From Russia With Love hits its quarter century today. How do you feel about that? I feel pretty good about it tbh. This edition’s ramshackle gallery of sins includes odd tattoos, a gypsy wedding, burst water pipes and an ingenious child sucking on a lolly. And if that hasn’t piqued your interest then I don’t believe your interest can be piqued by anything.

Again, my lack of Russian language ability is letting me down, I have no idea what the package on the right is all about. All I know is that the guy that owns the arm on the left absolutely loves whatever is inside the package on the right. I’m assuming he (or she) isn’t just a fan of the child in the head scarf. But we’ll never know for sure.
