Market Day Tuesday…

javaTuesday is the day I definitely go to the market. Nikolai’s and Larissa’s ride did not show up and will not show up for a few more days, thus him and his wife needed to get more food. He went with me and stocked the cupboards again with potatoes, apples, tomatoes and other goodies. He was really thankful, because there just is no other way to get food for them…

Nikolai loves to go to town with me and I like having him along. It is what makes the world go around. How many Russians can say that they had an American chauffeur them around all summer? 🙂 That is what I thought!

IMG0841AThey gave me a pig pan full of little delicious plums and told me after they are gone to get all I can eat. Their trees are full of plums and Nikolai explains that eat these plums and everything inside of you comes out the other end, the way it is supposed to… 😉

Good advice, because that could be an issue if it does not come out the way it is supposed to…

Nikolai and Vova sat at our table in our front yard and discussed about the past presidents of Russia. The best I followed is this; Putin (OK,) Medvedev (we do not mention,) Yeltsin (worst kind of drunk,) Gorbachev (American patsy sellout of the country,) Chernenko (Who?,) Andropov (OK sometimes,) Brezhnev (could have been worse,) Khrushchev (they liked,) and they ended with Bulganin and Malenkov (Who?,) and Nikolai talked about Stalin…

Nikolai is 86 years old by the way. That means he was born in 1929 and lived through the Stalin era and said it was OK! Never a problem for him, Vova was a kid during that era and life was good for him. It was good for me too… 🙂

Para River...

Now this is what I call a beautiful river, I need a canoe, for this river is perfect for a lazy paddling trip. I think that Sveta would have a blast canoeing this river with me. It is slow enough we could paddle upstream and float lazily back…

That is what we need to do, now to find a canoe…

Have a nice day…
