Urging others who witnessed the spectacle to come forward, including a woman whom he is certain took pictures, he added: “This was definitely a close encounter of the first kind. I was going to say ‘excuse me, you’re not from around here? “I think we have established contact, because I have seen this ‘being’ in the High Street.

"Tell her I love the idea of two cultures coming together in a relationship." "She says she thinks you could be her soulmate."Hundreds of dating agencies operate in Odessa, luring the foreign dollar into the laidback Black Sea port city with a suggestion of the nubile young model living a life so impoverished that she will be ready to fly away with the first slack-skinned foreign pensioner who offers her a way out.
