An American tourist was in Moscow for a week. He had to get rid of a large bag of garbage from his an apartment. He searched and searched, but didn’t find any place to the large bag of garbage. Finally he decided to go down one of the side streets to dump it there.
Yet, he was stopped by a Moscow police officer. ‘Hey you, what are you doing?’
‘Hello, I have to throw this garbage away,’ answered the tourist.
‘Oh, look, you can’t throw it away here. Follow me,’ the policeman offered.
He led the tourist to a beautiful garden with green grass, colorful flowers, and freshly cut hedges.
‘Here you can dump it.’
The American shrugged and threw his large bag of garbage.
‘Thank you officer. This is very nice of you. Is this Russian courtesy?’ asked the tourist.
‘No. This is American Embassy.’
