The Crimea. Just the name conjures up romantic images, ancient battles, of history being made. The ancient Greeks called it the Golden Horde name it proudly wears even today.
The beach town of Yalta in the south of Ukraine clings to a spur of land jutting into the Black Sea on the southern tip of Crimea. It is most famous for the conference at the Livadia Palace in 1945 when President Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and General Stalin met to decide the fate of Europe after a war that rocked the whole of Europe to its very core. Today a thriving tourist industry grows by leaps and bounds every year.
There are lots of beauty contests and bikini competitions, and although the girls who enter are pleased to take home a sash to hang on the bedroom wall, the prime reason for heading south to Yalta is to be discovered by one of the many reps from the model agencies. These are not just pretty faces in the crowd or wannabe stars. No, these are smart career minded women who know that to make it in the modeling business, you have to take every shot you can to be noticed, no matter how slim chances.
