Seasons of Contrast Mark Russia…

Winter is here...

Here in Moscow, Russia where we live and even where our village is located 450 km down the South side of Moscow. Winter has enveloped us and will stay present for about 8 months…

Sveta and I just got back from another village trip and less than a month later from the previous trip

That short month signaled an end to the very short autumn and the start of a harsh Winter…

Moscow has very distinct seasons but Spring, Autumn and Summer are very short. The Winter is king and rules the largest portion of the year. In our trip to the village this time we had freezing ponds and water buckets with a thick layer of ice every morning, sealing the surface of the water in them, unbroken and quarter inch thick…

The seasons are definitely a contrast and that makes the soul happy. Because nothing is better than being able to experience Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.  Since Winter is my favorite season that makes Russia a wonderful place for me… 🙂

A lake near our village...

The picture above is a treat from nature. The day was perfectly still and no breeze cared to flutter the surface of the lake. I saw a perfect opportunity to get a picture of mirrored clarity…

Found While we walked the hills. Love This Pine...

So it may be a while until we get back to the village. Winter makes it hard to get there because the road to the village is treacherous and long at times. I have kicked myself in the butt several times because I did not search for a 4×4 Russian van and opted instead for a Volga. But the comfort of our Volga makes us glad we got her instead. Sveta and I have talked about putting a 4×4 drive train under our Volga wagon. That would be a wonderful perfect Volga… 🙂

I have several articles to do about this trip to the village. We discovered something that is fantastic. So stay tuned…

We had a great weekend hope yours was just as good…
