Spent the morning in the Obstetrics and Gynaecological hospital. Here we are, me and my groupmates spending some time while waiting for our teacher to arrive.

Every single person here, with only the exception of ONE, are bloggers. Can you believe that? That's got the be the highest density of bloggers that you can have fitted into one room!

Here are the hardworking ones, a rare moment captured on film. Haha!

From outside the classroom window, on the opposite wing of the building, the magnified picture of this room is an operation theatre. Yes, you're right, you're looking at an open window and what looks like a 19th Century air-conditioner. Yesterday we were just here watching a hysterectomy done with AN OPEN WINDOW!

When classes ended at 12.30, I took a bus and rode on to this stadium, for the second part of Kursk Student SpringFest or 'Фестиваль Студентическая Весна'. This time, it's the battle of the singers. A few of our students from Malaysia represented our university in this competition, one of which was featured in our Chinese New Year Concert. The vice dean was very impressed with their performance and handpicked them to represent our university in this competition.

You can sample a clip of their performance here:

A few performances that were showcased included:
A group of girls I like to call the Medieval Maidens, come fully equipped with dresses fit for the queens (or milkmaids...) of the medieval ages.

Bodilicious Russian chicks... and the one standing the most right happens to be at least 50 years old!

Here is what Russia has to offer for their answer to the Spice Girls phenomenon. From left to right (with the help of your imagination)- Scary, Baby, Posh, Ginger and Sporty.

After the last of our students performed (Chee Siong and Mex with their solo pieces), we took off!

During the bus ride home this one Russian kid sat next to me. Out of sheer boredom, I started playing 'Peek a boo' with him, squinting one eye, flicking out a tongue, roll my eyes a little, shake my head left and right real fast. And the kid was very much entertained.

Here Diana captured this picture while I was doing my bout of Peak a boo.

And here he's laughing at my silly antics. Really cute, right?

When we got off the bus stop, lo and behold we saw this huge graffiti on the road leading up to the Kursk Philharmonic Orchestra Concert Hall.

I asked this guy here what was he painting on the road, he explained that this abstract art commemorates the starting of the Jazz festival that was to kick start in Kursk starting today. What you see here are at first the piano, which slowly evolves into an abstract form of art, signifying (in his words) the freedom of expression of the art. Quite a nice piece, I must say.

Already my previous post mentioned about some International Musician are coming from the States to perform here in Kursk(Grammy nominated Dave Koz and his friends). I found out today that tonight, the JazzFest kicks off with another performance by International Jazz musicians Peter Swerd, a Swiss guitarist, Steve Kershow, an English playing the bass and Nikolay Vinskevich, a Russian playing the saxophone.

All of a sudden Kursk seems to be the most happening place to be in right about now.

    I like the picture which there are 4 people sort of doing brainstorming, looks like everybody is serious and attentive which is the same thing we do in our work during meetings and crewbriefing.
