New Bridge in the Russian Village…

The last time we were in the village they had such flooding that the bridges all disappeared from sight, washed away by the current. They have finally rebuilt the bridges and now people can get across the river to get to the big villages to buy groceries…

Sveta told me that they use to take the bridges down during the flooding season and then put them back up and then one year they stopped and now every 5 years or so, they have to install a new bridge…

So we took some pictures of the newest bridge and I suspect that since it is very low to the water, that we will see another new bridge before long. This last flood took out a suspension style bridge that was here and from what the people say, the whole valley area was underwater…

Now the original Monastery was smart and built the village on a hill, out of the flood plain. That is what makes it so perfect to take pictures of…

We are going to the big village today and then I am going to paint on the car. The fence also has to be mended and of course we need to just plain goof off. For tomorrow is Sveta’s birthday and she gets to do what ever she wants that day… 🙂
