Then there were the accompanying stories: "If you wear jeans to Russia, and pack more in your luggage, you can make a fortune selling them."
I don't know anyone who ever did that, but I do know we saw people wearing jeans in various towns in Russia last month. Of course, tourists wore them, but I tried to select photos of people who looked like locals in blue jeans.
Did we actually see any jeans for sale? If we did, we neglected to take pictures.

Natascha in blue jeans
Svetlana with a pony tail
Although we’re very far apart
Ekaterina stole my heart
Marushka in blue jeans
Is the Russian darling I adore
Yaneta’s a very special angel too
A fairy tale come true
Milana in blue jeans
Is everything I hoped she'd be
A teenage goddess from Russia
And she belongs to me
They said there were no blue jeans in their world
But what they said is out of date
Now there are blue jeans in their world
And in them they look great
|Well, okay, some of them look great, and some of them (see behind her) don't!!|
