Russian walks 9,000-km home after being robbedSeptember 7th, 2011 - 8:40 pm ICT by IANS
Moscow, Sep 7 (IANS/RIA Novosti) A 47-year-old Russian walked 9,000 km from Moscow to his hometown on the Kamchatka Peninsula after he was robbed of money, a media report said.
The man’s troubles began in Moscow in 2010 when his acquaintances stole his documents and money. The man decided to return home to Kamchatka by foot, the Russian Komsomolskaya Pravda tabloid said Tuesday.
During his 400-day trip, the man had been making ends meet by recycling empty glass bottles and working as a porter and unskilled worker, the tabloid said.
The Vladivostok police, in Russia’s Far East, were perplexed when the tramp in worn-out boots said he had been robbed in Moscow — after he had crossed practically all of Russia.
Police found the robber and returned the man’s belongings and money.
