Yeah, me too — join the club. I am at work now feeling utterly sick, but I will be alright — all I have to do is get this appointment out of the way and then I can go home.

I love swimming but hate swimming pools, cause of chlorine- it’s so bad for your skin and hair — it’s unreal. And the smell — yuck. When I sprained my ankle the second time — my GP told me I would be better off switching to swimming and do less running, as the amounts of running I do are really damaging for my joints. In London sea water chlorine free pools started to appear https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.harpersbazaar... now I am thinking- maybe I will switch to swimming, we’ll see.
I heard in Moscow they also have chlorine free pools which are cleaned by using ultra violet rays, is that true?

I usually swim in chlorine free pool, there is no smell. But of course swimming in the sea or a beautiful lake/river is 1000 times better. Unfortunately sea is not available atm.

I also like to swim in the open pools like that




But the nearest open pool is pretty far away from me (

So I usually go to this one

Nice.

We have open door pools here as well. Here they call such pools «lidos». In South West of London there is a huge Lido- Tooting Bec Lido, it’s over a 100 years old and is open throughout the year. https://www.slsc.org.uk/opening-times/ , but it is full of chlorine unfortunately. Anyway, got to go now- have a nice day)

Btw, do you like lakes?

My favorite lakes (that I visited) are

Рица (в Абхазии)



It is much more beautiful live

Ястребиное (Карелия)




People also organise rock climbing festivals and competitions there

I also stayed for 3 days on one small island at lake
Вуокса (Карелия)



It was in early May (too cold to swim there)

Grin (25771),

I love everything to do with water — rivers, lakes and the sea of course.
There are lakes everywhere here — there is a lake in every park and every common (that's the name for smaller parks), but people don’t swim in them — fish live there and birds use them- ducks, herons, swans, etc. I did a report here at one point about London parks and photoed some lakes, I can’t find it — it is in Sybil’s thread somewhere.
We also have Lake District here http://www.lakedistrict.gov.uk. — it is a massive National park with very beautiful lakes. But generally -people tend not to swim here in rivers and lakes, only the sea. Although the sea is quite cold here, as it is the North Sea.

P. S. Still stuck at work waiting for my appointment, I think i am going to go spare (that's slang for «crazy»), can’t wait for the day to end and the day is dragging.

Same here in Moscow. There are lots of parks like that and people usually don't swim there, nobody will swim in Moskva-river (for the same reasons people don't swim in Thames )

Closest park to me is Суворовский park

I know that feeling very well. Now I have a lot of work but I have to wait for other departments, they are to give me necessary information.

Small lakes in the parks are nice but I was never overwhelmed with emotions while looking at them.

Very nice park — don’t remember any park by that name in Moscow, is it new?

The Thames is actually very clean, cleaner than any other river flowing through a major city in the world. But it didn’t always use to be that way:

The River Thames is the cleanest river in the world that flows through a major city. This is a major feat considering that fifty years ago the river was so polluted that it was declared biologically dead. Read more

Got to go now, speak later)

Colombians can't love football more than those who invented it. It is impossible. But yeah, you are right, I have to agree — the media affects people's opinions of course. The media here is more varied than in Russia, there are a lot more opinions and that. But yeah — Russia's image right now is horrible here. Well, the World Cup is improving it no end, but other than that — there has been a lot of negativity now for a very long time — 4 years all in all — since the Ukrainian crisis started. I used to hate it before and like I said to you before, when I came on this forum I wanted to support the «patriots» but slowly slowly I realized I didn't belong in that company at all for the reasons I already cited earlier. The negative stuff about Russia doesn't bother me that much anymore. If I never came to this forum, it probably still would. But I am not a Russophobe, I just think that Putin's anti-liberal system is bad for the country and it will collapse in one way or another- it's a question of «when» rather than «if», it is a matter of time. I just hope that the collapse won't be too dramatic for the people who live there (I have my relatives there too), the economy, etc. And that it will be peaceful. But I wish for it to happen. The sooner it happens, the sooner the country can start healing itself and become healthier. Because whichever way you look at it — it is a great country with massive potential and the Russians deserve to live better — they are not any worse than people in the West. Just a bit backwards, but one can catch up.

Today again — the papers' headlines are mainly about the poisoning of the two Brits from Amesbury by «Novichok». Even the Independent came out with very harsh headlines https://www.independent.co.uk/?CMP=ILC-refresh Independent is owned by a Russian — by Lebedev and publishes a lot of articles which are loyalist to the Putin's regime (I can't call them pro Russian, as I don't consider the Putin's regime to be pro Russian you see. Sorry about that, but it is the truth and I don't want to lie to you.)
