Cemetery Russian Style

Cemetery: a place that really is not a whole bunch of fun to be in, but yet still interesting and catches the soul, mind and thoughts like no other place on earth. That is how I look at a cemetery and yesterday Sveta and I spent most of the day running around a cemetery…

Sveta has been talking with her Uncle who is in his 80’s and he wants to have a head stone put on a family members grave. Sveta has purchased the head stone and it is in our flat waiting to be installed. I am going to install it and yesterday Sveta and I went to the cemetery to see what I would have to gather together, to allow me to install the head stone…

It was a very interesting trip and the first time that I have been to one of the family grave areas. Lucky it is cool, but 10,000 mosquitoes made a meal of me and seriously, I had to take an anti-allergy pill, plus I got very sick. I was bit that many times…

The first image is the Graves that we were looking for. There are three people buried here in this tiny spot. Two people are on the stone that is visible and we will install another stone laying flat to remember Sveta’s aunt by. The other two photos are to show you how different a Russian cemetery is from one in my native homeland the USA…

There is no pattern and rhyme or reason to a normal Russian cemetery. I realize that Russians may see a sense to it all, but I do not. It is almost impossible to get around in and everything is fenced and gated. It was definitely a trip for the brave or a normal Russian…

I have discovered that Russians definable look at life different than Americans. That is what I love about Russia. The trip to the cemetery was wonderful and it is very close to our home. We have a list of what we need and a trip to the home store will get what I need…

I feel honored to be able to do the work, it just might have to wait until the mosquitoes go away. They just loved this American in Russia…
