Vacation Time and thoughts…

Armenia is where we will be next week. Sveta and I cannot wait. We are going to spend a week in Armenia seeing the sights and looking at the cradle of civilization. Sounds cool huh?

Just walking this morning and looking at life in the Moscow area called Korolyov….what a wonderful city. I am lucky to be an American living in such a beautiful city within Russia…

Last image is of a woodpecker. Right in the middle of Korolyov, Russia. He did not care as I stood and watched him. He was busy digging bugs out from a tree and ignored my presence. When I got done looking at him, I turned and found three more people watching him also. That is the way it is in Moscow, everyone ignores everything, until someone stops and looks at something…

Even in a department store, you look at something and people flock to see what you have found. It has taken me awhile, but I am getting use to it after all these years…

I have found it comforting that the Russian spend lots of money on parks. Parks are very important to Russians and in cities such as Korolyov and Moscow they are also very important. People need a place to escape the masses of humanity, and lots of parks help…

Today I sat in a new park, no one was around for it was Saturday morning and a squirrel, a sparrow and a stray dog, all came by to say hi. I growled at them and they laughed as they went to other exciting things to see…

I guess Big Bear is not scary to some…
