Udmurtia

interest to anyone interested in paganism—Udmurtia is one of Europe's last remaining strongholds of organized shamanism, despite its active repression under the Tsarist and Soviet governments. Travelers interested in Udmurtia's native religion should try to seek out a recent Udmurt film, "Shadow of Alangasar." Shamanist structures and sites persist to this day in isolated villages throughout the region. Perhaps top on anyone's list of things to do in Udmurtia is to see the Udmurt national folk theater and dance company Italmas. Talk The Udmurt (Udmurt phrasebook) language shares official status with Russian (Russian phrasebook), but you can expect that anyone you meet will be at least bilingual in Russian. Udmurt is a Finno-Ugric language closely related to Komi (Komi Republic). Get in Flights arrive in Izhevsk from Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and Yekaterinburg. The flight from Moscow takes about 2 hours. Trains run to Izhevsk from Moscow (daily, 18 hours), Saint Petersburg (~31 hours), Yekaterinburg (11 hours), Kazan (6 hours), and Perm (10 hours). Glazov is a stop on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Get around See Itineraries Do Udmurtia would make an interesting destination (to say the least) for hunting, fishing, horseback riding, and hiking. Eat There are a few restaurants in Izhevsk where you can sample Udmurt cuisine, but outside of those, it should not be too hard to find some Udmurt pies (perepechi). Drink Try the Udmurt national drink, Kumiska. Stay safe Go next The next stops on the Trans-Siberian Railway are Zuevka, Kirov Oblast to the west and Perm to the east. commons:category:Udmurtia wikipedia:Udmurtia

Elaboration David LaChapelle opens ''Rize'' with a disclaimer that reads, "The footage in this film has not been sped up in any way." This is a necessary thing to note because the general movements and rapid body contortions that are characteristic of krump dance are done with such speed and intensity that they have been described as mind boggling at the least. LaChapelle then proceeds to open the film with footage of the Watts Riots that happened in the Watts (Watts, Los Angeles) neighborhood of Los Angeles, California in 1965. This upheaval was in response to oppressive acts done by white police officers onto a black motorist by the name of Marquette Frye in August of that year. This incident unleashed a long-brewing hatred and anger over the black oppression in America, which erupted into full-blown riots throughout South Central (South Los Angeles). The riots lasted a total of five days and at the cost of 34 lives and 40 billion dollars in property damage. Since then, other conflicts and feuds were started between many of the remaining sets of the Crips gang. It is a popular misconception that Crips sets feud only with Bloods. In reality, they fight each other — for example, the Rollin' 60s and 83rd Street Gangster Crips have been rivals since 1979. In Watts, Los Angeles, the Grape Street Watts Crips and the P Jay Crips have feuded so much that the P Jay Crips even teamed up with the local Bloods set, the Bounty Hunter Bloods, to fight against the Grape Street Crips.
