25 July 2014 – Friday: Uglich

We visited a Russian family in their home this morning.  They treated us to snacks and home-made “vodka” (something between brandy and grain alcohol).  It was actually tastier than some commercially produced vodkas which ofter resemble paint thinner.  They got their water from a well in the yard.  Their kitchen garden was quite large and very productive.  The “indoor” toilet consisted of a plastic bucket with seat/lid.  Very much like a portable camping potty.  After the home visit we toured Uglich’s Kremlin (fortress).  The small cathedral contained beautiful painted icons.

 

 

All the Best,

Wayne & Dianne
