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 a village but for us Americans it is definitely a town or even small city. There are at least 10,000+ people living in it. The village is called Sarai…

The pictures above are an example of how the natural gas to the homes is done in Russia. I have been amazed that residential pipelines are always above ground. This is how they do it in a big city like Moscow also. Except we live in flats in the city and they just run the pipes all over the outside of the building. I see once in a while gas pipes buried but that is a project that the homeowner has to do…

The last picture is of our lake near our tiny village. It is being drained so that they can get all the fish out and when they do that the water birds are soooooo happy. It is a fish eating paradise. You can see the little fish making the water boil… 🙂

The lake is being filled again as I write this article because they are going to start another crop of fish. They just pump the water back and forth from the river. It is an amazing system and they can fill our huge lake in a matter of a few days. Just like they can empty it in a few days. The farm fish business in Russia is a huge lucrative business. It like any other business helps grow other businesses and the amount of employment in this area has got to be in the hundreds of workers during the Summer time. Of course Winter gets very slow…

That is it for today. We are tired and have fencing to put up tomorrow. It is time to keep the goats from getting into our yard and trying to eat everything that we plant. It is either put up a better fence or start having goat stew. Since the neighbors would not be able to see the humor in eating goat stew. We will just make it goat proof…

Have a great weekend…

Kyle and Sveta
