Following Rocky! 1976 VS 2015

by Kashpersky, August 2, 2015

Make it happen, Rock!

Rocky Balboa

All my conscious life Rocky movie and the main character created and performed by Sylvester Stallone was an example and the cast of how the real man must look like.
Example of how to fight against circumstances and against yourself, how to fight for your close ones future and how to fight for your dream, fall and rise no matter what, how to lose and find and finally how to reach the aim!

It was my dream to visit this places for many-many years. Thanks God it happened! Today I visited Rocky shooting areas together with my wife and close friend who came to visit me in USA 🙂

And of course Rocky’s Apartment at Philadelphia 1818 Tusculum Street! I was very glad to meet the real owner of this flat. The woman was really nice and welcome.

Unfortunately this area is in a terrible condition. Here is the view right from Rocky’s windows

Big pleasure and honor for me to visit this awesome places, feel the spirit of human will and virtually meet Rocky, but it’s time to go home.

Can’t stop myself from coming to Mick’s Gym again for a second to say “bye” on our way back…
