Russian Village Coffee Thoughts… (08-06-2014)

Morning everyone!

I thought I would spiel a few rambling thoughts this morning and I will start with our electrical situation in the Russian Village. Then I will talk about our new village washing machine and maybe wander around to anything else that excites me…

We were amazed and happy for within a day, one of the village guys (I call him Volva,) climbed up the tower and swapped circuits to put us back online.
