Boris - a passerby from the past

Every time drivers, who are stuck in endless traffic jams at the beginning of Leninskiy Prospect on the side of Universitetskiy Prospect, can observe how a fellow is juggling clubs right at the road. Many people think that he is a circus artist, but he is just a cheery fellow that, due to his age, can't find a job in his native town in Moscow region. He introduces himself to everyone as "a passerby from the past".


Boris has a family, children and grandchildren. He has a profession, but nodoby employs him. Not because of the lack of work, but because of his age. So he decided to come to Moscow to earn money. Drivers and passerbies sometimes give him several coins, and some people just take an interest and come to ask him about his life. Many drivers say that Boris makes their time in jams easy and interesting. Now he has many friends at Universitetskiy Prospect.

Boris has never worked in the circus, and now it is late to go there. He learned how to juggle in childhood and still remembers how to do it.

"The most important thing is to smile more often, ok?", - said Boris before we left.
