CHITA, EASTERN SIBERIA: Yura, 20, a third-year design student, was sporting pants with suspenders and a tattoo of Michelangelo’s David on his arm as he hung out at a barbershop.
Yura has already left his artistic mark on his native city, decorating the walls of a bar and barbershop. But he hopes next to leave his city for Germany, where he spent the summer with relatives.
“I fell in love with Germany following my two month stay there. I love the architecture [in Germany] and have always been attracted to beautiful buildings.”
Yura, who has German roots, said the political disputes between Russia and west hasn’t impacted one bit his love for Europe.
