Cup of Chicory and Sunflowers and a Reservoir…

This morning I was sipping that cup of chicory. While I was enjoying that cup of chicory I was doing some thinking’s. I was thinking about sunflowers and a reservoir that Sveta, Boza and I stumbled upon yesterday…Lets start with the reservoir. In Russia you do not have signs everywhere telling you what is here and what is there as…

Vipera berus, the common European adder… (Snake)

Sveta yelled yesterday from the yard at the village house. I ran out to see what was up and found Sveta and Boza hugging a tree and a bad attitude snake being very aggressive with them. It seems that Boza heard the snake first as it crawled toward Sveta as she was reading. Sveta knew what the snake was right…

Orthodox Church in a Russian Village…

I just think that this church is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. They have been working on fixing it back up and I am glad because these are the parts of the past that need to be saved. The walls of a church like this are a meter thick of brick. They are built like…

Market day in Sarai: The big Russian Village…

Sunday the day we rest and go to the market. We will not work today, but we will load up on veggies and fruits from the market. We also always buy socks and other clothes at the market. Every Sunday in Sarai a big village near our tiny little village, they have a huge market that I call a street…

Cup of Chicory, Shashlik, Real Pepsi and that Fence…

That cup of chicory is always better in the village. Today was no different and thinking’s always go with a good hot cup of beverage. Today those thinking’s have settled around Shashlik (шашлык), Real Pepsi and that Fence… Even though I am diabetic, I had to try the real Russian Pepsi Cola. In Russia we have two types of Pepsi.…

Little Ole Abkhazia gets no Respect from the West…

It is a shame that the West can not grow up and accept facts as they really are. Abkazia does not want to be part of Georgia and that is final. I don’t care about all the other republics that want the same thing all over the world. I am talking about Abkazia and they do not want to be…

Going to Sleep in the Russian Village…

Sveta and I just spent a long day getting things done. We got our two 50 liter propane bottles filled, we picked up 50 meters of rolled fencing, we talked with all the neighbors and caught up on all the gossip and we took lots of pictures of the village and the town near by. The town is actually called…

Waking up in the Russian Village…

Oh my goodness what a wonderful Thursday morning this was. Sveta had her green tea and I had my chicory. It was so nice to be in the village. We arrived yesterday and as always on the first day it takes forever to get everything in line. You have to go through a reversal pattern of when you leave and…
