Russian Farm…

20130721_150717

As Sveta and I travel Russia we see a lot of farms. The farms are not totally the same as I was use to in America, but they are definitely farms. I grew up with a world of individual farmers farming the land and I know that is changing in America everyday as I write this. The individual farm is a dying business and being taken over by corporations 24/7…

In Russia the farms have never been individual as I can see and a typical farm is like what the picture shows, then nearby is a farm village. In that village is where the farm hands live with their families and they work at a farm like this. In fact I am standing on the road that leads to the village for this farm. It is behind me…

This farm is a mixture of old and new equipment, unlike the larger farms nearer to Moscow. That is why I took a picture of a typical farm in the boonies and not of a farm that has all new John Deere tractors all around it. This one still is using many old Soviet tractors and we see many Soviet tractors still plowing fields as we travel. They are tough pieces of equipment and they look to do their job for many more years to come…

It looks like home to me and that is something that has been the hardest to get through peoples heads in America. The world is all the same and yet we try to place one country above other countries and we try to make one religion better than another country and we try to believe that we are better than other people. The world is really just the same all over…

This farm reminds me of the fact that people just want to live in peace and harmony…

Why can we not just grow food, grow happy, grow peace, grow life and grow spirituality?

Governments are not people, religion is not spirituality and people are basically good overall…

Have a nice day…
