The main thing that penal colony works did was mine for coal As you can see they’d bring the coal up to the surface on these sleds. Here you see a model of the first oil rig as you probably know today oil is a big deal on Sakhalin. But it was first detected during the penal colony period. However, oil only began major extraction during the first half of the 20th century. I’ve been told that the Japanese only eat sushi with just a tiny bit of soy sauce where as Westerners and Russians pluge their sushi to the bottom, is this true? Take the sushi that you desire… Just give it a little bit then lift it up. This is enough, please take a bite. Please get some on the fish. That is plenty now enjoy. Wow this fish is way better than in Moscow, that’s for gosh darn sure! So do we use chopsticks? Before we taket he tempura we grab a bit of ginger into the sauce which kind of turns it into a giner paste. Just a tiny bit. We stir it up and the sauce begins to change flavors. And so, we take some in this manner, but you can push it into the sauce a bit more strongly to get the flavor in, we then put our hand under the tempura and eat. That’s the rules. And hello! Hello! Well I am interested or should I say I’d like to get a nice seafood present, but there is a problem – the long flight to Moscow. What can I buy that will survive the trip? Well first off we can pack up everything for you for a long flight. We have special boxes and thermal bags that you can take with you on the flight. In your case, flying back to Moscow I would recommend getting something frozen like this fish meat here or maybe some scallops. This can all be packed up in foil and you’ll have no problem taking it with you. You can also take, if you want, some oysters, they will be okay for 12 hours outside of water. They’ll make it all the way to Moscow with you. Yes! They look great. I’d love to try them but of course that is probably impossible Because they are in the water and well… alive. We can open one up for you? Want to try? Lets’! We should spray on some lemon. I assume you know how to eat one of these? Just takit with your hand like that and with the spoon help yourself knock it down. That was great! A bit of a strong flavor… one sec. Would you like a paper napkin? Thanks that was deliscious… a very unexpected and powerful flavor. Lovely! I would like to get some canned caviar please, I may have to go to the USA soon and I don’t want any problems at the border. Sure thing. In theory yes, but this “acquaintanceship” ended around 15 years ago! Hey there! Oh! Hello! Well so we’re going to Harat’s or what? Yeah yeah, just park your ride and let’s do it. Well Boris, that was lovely! Gosh, I haven’t done anything at night in ages, thanks for the invite! No, thank you for coming sir! Well I guess I’ll see you tomorrow or something, right? Good Day! One Rider. Korsakov Station. Tim! What are you doing here? Wow, cool! Yep, this is a real sea port.. I see that! for the Island of Sakhalin Are they going to take your car? No? No. Yeah, yeah. What the heck is that for? It latches onto containers to hoist them up. For containers Let’s go see how this thing works.
