Norilsk Russia: Flowers blooming everywhere

Norilsk Russia: Flowers blooming everywhere

People may find surprising that colorfull flowers bloom in Norilsk City, but they do in the summer and they are really beautiful.

We are in Siberia, and we have the coldest temperatures in earth.  Even under these extreme circumstances, flowers, people and flowers bloom in Norilsk.

I can understand that foreigners have a bad image of Norilsk just because we are in Russia. We have a lot of things to improve, and we acknowledge that.  Nevertheless, we have millions of good things to be proud of.

Could you imagine that we have fresh food all year round thanks to ships that cross the Artic Ocean and full our tables with fruits, vegetables, meet, poultry and even delicatessen.  

People may think about Siberia as a dark, cold, and lonely place, but it could be a spot on Earth as bright, warm and full of life as any other.

That is why I love Norislk, Russia, in my beautiful Siberia!

Norilsk Russia: Flowers may bloom anywhere
Don’t stop the groove

Pay attention are you listening
You’re my favorite girl
Excuse me for the moment
I’m in another world
(On a mountain) by a fountain
Flowers blooming everywhere
With venus and cupid, the picture’s very clear
Hang the sign upon the door, say
Don’t disturb this groove
Just a way to say that
I’m so into you and the feelings so real
So don’t disturb this groove
Erotic whispers for the listener
the passion starts again
You’re my lollipops and everything
And a little taste of sin
Causing fire and desire
In this mortal soul to live
Till the angels fall from heaven
And the day the earth stands still
Hang a sign upon the door
Say don’t disturb this groove
Just a way to say that
I’m so into you and the feeling’s so real
So don’t disturb this groove
Just a way to tell you that
I’m so into you
Close your eyes and let the music put you in the groove
Lock the door and turn the phone off, it’s time for me and you
Hang the sign upon the door, say don’t disturb this groove
