A Broom in Russia…

A broom in Russia is a work of art and a talent that is handed down over the years. For a broom to last it must be put together correctly and Russians have a knack for making some awesome brooms out of twigs and string.

The gentleman above makes his brooms for his usage to clean the streets and playgrounds around our flats. I have seen him make several brooms and he will sometimes spend a whole day making brooms for all the guys to use in sweeping.

He makes two types of brooms one from tree branches and the other from dried grasses.

I was always amazed in this world of modern technology that they do not use regular brooms but after a few years here and seeing how good of a job they do. Why buy a broom when you can just make it.

In America we ran business on the pretense that ‘time is money’. I see that in Russia there is more time than money…

Now you know a little more about Russia!

Windows to Russia!

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. - Amelia Earhart
