Vladimir, 66 ans, Bolshaya Sadovaya street, Moscow

I was born in Moscow. I had literally tens of jobs during my life. I worked at a construction site, in the factory, at an institute, at the vegetable warehouse to name a few. My favourite job was making decorations at Mosfilm (largest and oldest Russian film studio). I had a chance to travel to Taiga (thick boreal forest in central Russia) with our production team but I didn’t go. They would film in multiple isolated places in the country I would never have a chance to visit myself. But I refused and honestly, I regret doing so very much now. 

I am in retirement but I work as a delivery man on a part-time basis. 

My children are already grown, I don’t have grandchildren yet. 

When my kids were small we used to walk in the Moscow zoo, in the city centre and such. Sadly, I don’t have much time to go for a proper walk. Now it’s more like spending time in transport from home to work and vice versa. 

What I really love to do is feeding squirrels and swans in Gorky Park when I have time. This has been my weekend routine lately. You know, these animals and birds need to be fed all right in winter. I usually take more feed so I can share it with others. Watching them feeding the animals is heartwarming.
