BMWFEST Ukraine 2013
It was long tine from my last post. I just returned from BMWFEST Ukraine.
Very long way! I changed my passport too long so I was late to buy tickets to Uzbek plane....but I found and buy ticket via Almaty-city(Kazakh airlines called Air-Astana).
Andrey from Kazakhstan BMW-club met me in Almaty-airport, feed me and show the city till my transit plane:
after 5 ours fly finally I reach Borispol airport(16km to Kiev, capital of Ukraine). Ruslan, member of BMW club of Ukraine met me and drive to city:
U can see he drive 160km/h(excess of speed limit more than 30km/h). 5 ours ago Andrey drive 40 or 70km/h in Almaty(too much cam's and radars, and high penalty in Kazakhstan)
the road in Kiev is bumpy, ugly and very bad asphalt. As bad as in Tashkent, haha:
Ukranian bmw fans drives as Uzbek, too fast, don't use self-belts and more speak by mobile)))))
Many peoples wear short pant as me.
We met delegation of Azerbaijan BMW Club, the flied one day before, and I join them. We visited the centr of capital called Maydan square. When we walk the street we met peopl in bmw e46, who drink tekila. They called us. Wow! This is bmw fan's from Belorussia!
A little banquet:
Next day two e23 picked me and drive to Circus, meeting place of yangtimers convoy. I join them becouse ther convoy was should to enter festplace first. Preparing:
fans stick members and sponsor stickers to their cars. Also member's numberplaces.
I got one sticker. Will stick it to my e21 in Tashkent))))
every minute the quantity gains: ***1077;23/28/21
If U visit Kiev, U must taste Chicken Kiev)))
Actually in Kiev's cafe feed not so good as in Tashkent))) and expensive..
the convoy turned to the airfield called "Chayka"(seagull):
organizer were wait for us:
dozens of people with walkie-talkies, who didn't sleep all night long and prepared site...
At the entrance to the airfild, there was tent city of one of the sponsors, "Baltika beer":
about 30 sharks in convoy and about 10 who was late:
I thinked first that too sad to see so little convoy. For example there are 350 e28/660 e30/50 e12/150 e21/110 e23 in Tashkent! But it was only first convoy. The quantity of bmw who visited FESTthis year is 2500 bmw!!! About 10000 bmw-lovers visited FEST!
Nest car who was late, e24. Wow, they knows me! We met each other and they gave a box of beer)))
we walk to concert stage, near it diller of BMW preparing to show many interesting cars.
but I didn't like that we even couldn't breath on it! Don't wan't everybody touch your car, don't bring it to show. We can find and see alpina in internet...
Unlike them, Yura, who is vice of BMW Club of Ukraine, was don't mind everybody touch his nice Z1, enter and touch wheel, take pictures:
Part II coming soon)))
