Translate into Russian

Saturday, August 19, 2006

As part of our language studies we are trying to spend more time in an all Russian language environment without a translator. We just returned from a week in a Russian village were we lspent the week speaking as much Russian as possible, and getting a deeper appreciation of Russian life and culture.

Here are a few photos to show you a bit about Russian village life in the summer.

This is the Garden: Full of potatoes and other vegetables. A garden is the main source of food for many Russian villagers.

Here is the house we stayed in
It consists of a large entryway, a large kithcen area and a living room with two vwry small bedrooms. The house has no running water, but is heated with both gas and wood

This is Anya, and her cat and the next picture is Karen and a new freind

As mentioned there was no running water in the home. This is the well from which much of our water came from.
