Transdniester - a narrow strip of land sandwiched between Ukraine and Moldova that broke away from the Soviet Union just before USSR collapsed, officialy it is part of Moldova but after bloody civil war in 1990 it proclaimed independence. Its self proclaimed independence is not recognized by any country in the world. Presently Transdniester is a living museum of life in USSR. It is also well known as a hotbed for international organized crime.

The idea was that it is going to be like this:

but in reality it is like this:

Karate Kid

I was in Casamance - a region after long low-level conflict that was fuelled by dispute over regions independence from Senegal when I spotted this karate gym, the light was great, I introduced myself and after a short chat I was allowed to shoot some photographs

The master-trainer himself

Then I left and after a long walk I reached my hotel where I saw this man- he was obviously coming back from the same gym, but I haven't seen him there before. I have shoot quickly without asking a series of pictures and he bowed - this was karate style bow of course. Then I showed him the pictures from the gym. We laughed - he must have went out of the gym just couple of seconds before I entered it.
This is my favourite photo from senegal:
