Having now spent almost a week people watching in the Black Sea village of Sveti Vlas it has dawned on me that since our last visit the place has been taken over by Russians. These are not the old school Russians that used to holiday here years ago, but a new breed of new money young Russians. Sitting on our balcony at night watching the parade of exoticars is quite amusing to say the least. Every type of exotic sports car you can imagine will drive bye in any one hour period. I have never been lucky enough to see a Bugatti Veyron in the flesh before, but 2 came past last night both with RUS plates. Where is all this sudden wealth coming from in Russia, they cant all be in the Mafia ?. Any properties that are coming up for sale are snapped up immediately by them for cash. I remember some years ago they did the same with Altea Hills outside Benidorm, then built the Orthodox church with the gold roof which can be seen from the coast road. I had a walk down into the marina the other night and there were private yachts down there that would make the QE2 look like the Royal Iris. What the hell is going on in the world ?.
