“Travels to a Different Time: 8June1975: Olomouc, Czechoslovakia: Russian “Friendship”

Had a nice warm sleep and a good one until 09:30. Bread, honey, chocolate wafer cookies and mineral water for breakfast. I washed after and lamented there is no hot water in this place. I am overdue for a shower. Everywhere you go in this town it is coated with propaganda. Those disgusting Russian pigs the biggest insult to Marxism and communism. I’d like to rip up the idiotic posters proclaiming Russian Czech friendship. They stress this friendship endlessly but I think no one, even the communist elite, believe it. It is hoax. What friendly country invades another? I do my best not to become angry about these lies. There are plenty of Russian soldiers here showing their “friendship” to the Czech people!

Dizzy from the excess propaganda I went for a couple of ice creams and a Pepsi. Soup and sausages for dinner. I watched the clock in the town square strike 6. There are figures that stick out and are supposed to do wonderful things but half were not working. Home early and read then off the bed at 20:00 hours.

I should say I have no beef with the Russian people as many of them suffer under the yoke of their distorted communism. I have met many good people behind the Iron Curtain who detest the Russians and the communist political system. So my beef is with the Russian government that exercises muscle power over its rude “friends”. Their Czech lackies are even bigger traitors.
