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. One is made with corn syrup and the other is made with real sugar. The corn syrup one is just exactly like what you get in America. The other one with real sugar is what was made in the Soviet Union and is still made today. A little known fact is that Pepsi was the first cola to infiltrate the USSR. In fact I believe it was the first Western consumer product that was sold in the USSR. It seems that I have read that Pepsi has a 50 year span of time in Russia…

I have to say that little bottle of Pepsi was the best I have had in a very long time and one little bottle is more than enough to quench the thirst. It brought back memories of the old Pepsi and another era of time, at least the old Pepsi that was made with real cane sugar. Damn it was good and in Russia you have a choice of either one. Why buy the corn syrup version?

Shashlik is another Russian favorite. It would be called BBQ in America. We just use metal sticks here to hold the food. Just like a shish-kabob. We put veggies and meat all together on the grill. In these pictures you see cabbage, whole onions and chicken…

Then the last picture is a good chunk of the 50 meters of fence that we worked on today. Tomorrow we will pick up another 50 meters and that will get us about half done with our fence. I also have to pick up some fence posts and replace a few. When we get done there will not be any goats eating our plants anymore. (We hope – cross your fingers!)

Well it has been a long day and we are going to bed. I am going to have another cup of chicory and Sveta will have another cup of green tea. We will chit chat about the day and then tomorrow we get up and go to the Street Market that is every Sunday at out big village near us. Maybe we will get some pictures and we can show you one of the most fun markets we ever go to. It is where we can buy anything from jeans to car parts…

Have a good day and night… 🙂

Kyle and Sveta
