The Russians Have Landed!

In Manteo, North Carolina of all places.

Who knew? Well others were aware, just not Wendy and me. We typically frequent the Outer Banks in the off-season and had not before experienced this phenomenon.

Evidently the dwindling supply of young Americans willing to spend their summers in the Outer Banks working jobs ranging from hotel clerk to stockers at the Food Lion created the need to import labor from Russia.

Of this I need to know more. It's not an urgent need, but again it's the curiosity factor niggling at my brain.
