Well… if you look at the map of Europe, you will find a little state there called Croatia… and on the north, harbour of Rijeka. Rijeka is the largest Croatian port, approx. 300.000 inhabitants. (the whole Croatia has people like Manhattan and the size is similar to the size
of Virginia, so what do you expect…
In the past couple of weeks, few US Army ships including one aircraft carrier (USS Kearsarge?) are guests of the Croatian government. This is the third visit of the US Mediterranean fleet
to the Croatia, the last one was in April this year, Croatian and US Army sometimes have
together drills and stuff like that.
There is a lot of very young guys, obviously some of them juiced to the bone, especially moonfaced members of the Military Police (Ship Police, in fact). There are some things I noticed: most guys are very, very young, in their late teens or early twenties and very fit; they run early in the morning in the center of the city, exercise and generally look very healthy.
I bet their nutrition is fine except the fact they can’t really be soldiers and eat every
two or three hours.
Most of them are not tall, tops up to 1,70-1,75 m. Lots of them suffer from baggy pants-tough ghetto boy-chains around the neck-rnb-hip-hop syndrome, regardless of the race. The common denominator of the Friday and Saturday night is to get drunk like an ass and puke in the streets or pick a fight - generally, things like this do not happen in Croatia, people go out just to go out, have fun and not to fight, but it seems the young Americans have different standards, however, our cultures are different in many aspects, so I guess this is just one of them. I saw more club fights last weekend and more people that passed out because of acute ethanol intoxication than in the past two years! Of course, they are all after local girls, so it’s kind of sad to see the girls literally sell themselves for 100 US$ or so… some kind of “legal” and “temporary” juvenile prostitution. Anway, last night when I was performing a gruelling set of deads and bent over rows, a young guy entered my gym located in the center of the city and tried to obtain some roids from the owner who happens to be a friend of mine. Of course, his extent of knowledge was limited to “Deca”, “D’bol” and the only measuring unit he knew was “one cc” or “two cc”. It’s amazing. I was pissed off like hell, his knowledge about roids was non-existant! Well, at least the ignorance is common all over the world, most Croatian guys don’t know shit about roids and juicing either. Well, just wanted to tell you about this… another impression is that I am simply jealous at African American guys who display incredible muscle thickness and hardness genetically compared to Caucasians. 90 % of the guys are ripped, hard and vascular naturally, obviously without much training under their belt, of course, they weigh 60 or 65 kgs but it doesn’t matter. Most Caucasians in Europe OTOH, especially those of Slavic origin tend to be fat slobs and carry a lot of body fat if they do not watch their diet, myself included. Well, just the usual 2c, please, ignore the grammar…
