In Russia: May Holidays 2013 and Village Here We Come…

From may 1st through May 10th it is nothing but holiday celebration time in Russia. This is the time that Russians get the Dachas woke up and the village homes aired out. In fact I already smelled the grass being burned off the fields around Moscow and sometimes that makes for a smokey mess at times…

The chart below is the holidays that are celebrated at this time of the year…

Sveta has mentioned that we need to go to the village and clean it up, as well as air it out…

Now I hope she meant that, because I just love the village as it is the best place in the whole world. 🙂

Nothing makes this big bear perk up better than a trip to the Russian Village that we have a home in…

Our Russian Village home…

Why life is just grand in the village, in fact life is perfect, fabulous, magnificent, wonderful and stupendous all at the same time. You have an old well for water, electricity (most of the time), huge ponds to fish in, forests all around, friendly village people and the freshest air in the world…

Why it is just Grand…

Time to plan that trip to the village…

I hope to visit your village one day!))

Rather frustrated with the rat race at the moment. Need to come visit.

I noticed the gutters on your dacha. Be careful…they may want to fine you for collecting the rainwater. Oh I forgot, that is in the USA.

Yes we even have barrels! Now that is criminal! I have to say though that water like that is handy to water the gardens and such. But then Russia does not care if we collect ran water… 🙂

Yes it is a wonderful village. The people in it would love to have another American visit! They still like Americans, because they do not hear much news about the world. Thanks for stopping by…
