Kommuna or Sunrise to Freedom a Beautiful Russian Village…

I removed the pictures from the big camera today and I re-sized this one to fit the blog so that you do not have to click to see more. It was 5 times this big and way too big to work as a blog picture. By the way this picture was taken at 10:00 pm at night. The sun is setting behind me as I take the picture…

This is our village that we go to. It is now called Kommuna by the locals and Sunrise to Freedom by the ones who remember from the old days. This is the front half of the village in the picture. It extends way back after you crest the hill. I still have never seen a village that is more beautiful and serene in existence…

It use to be a female monastery in the old days and then was a school for handicapped children. The bell tower belies the fact of a monastery. Now it is just a simple village that is slowly dying away with time…

If I could buy it and restore it I would. This village has all that life would need. It has a wonderful small river loaded with fish. It has a huge lake as its forefront. It has a real source of water with no well needed to survive. It has rich soil to grow crops in and it has huge pine forests nearby for endless wood and food (hunting) supply…

I like the name Sunrise to Freedom it is a good name for a village…
