Picture Day at the Russian Village… (September 16th, 2014)

Around the village are some very large pine trees and many of these trees show years of abuse and use. Pines are very useful in many ways and one of these ways is to gather pine sap and make resin from it. Water buckets, boats and anything needing to be waterproof can be treated with resin. Even roofs on the houses. These trees are found everywhere and as you walk in the woods, you can find them. People use pine sap par normal in the Russian village…

A pine is a tough tree and even removing most of the soil through erosion from under a tree does not matter to the pine. It just keeps on surviving…

This morning we lost the sun as it was so foggy and took hours to finally burn off the dense clouds on the ground, but that has not stopped Boza from guarding his ball. He gets really worried if I go near his toys and tries to protect them. In the village Boza has a Frisbee and now this small ball from IBM. I found it while cleaning and Boza grabbed it immediately and ran. I asked Sveta if he could have it, for it was an original AS-400 IBM ball, most likely given to her when she was at a conference, she laughed and said that is fine. That made Boza happy…  🙂

The image of a table and metal panels is the way the guys are forming the roofing panels for the bell tower. Everything is just about all made by hands and it is really impressive…

Last but not least; Boza the sleeping dog, while I talk to Sveta on the phone…
