One Week - Part I

Although we spend most of each day at our desks, we do get out and about, and these are some of the things we see.

We often pass these twins in the morning as we walk to the office. We say "priviet" and their mother whispers to them to say "bye bye" to us.

All season little babushka's and others set themselves up to sell things on busy sidewalks. Anyone can do it. Garden produce is big right now, including end of the season flowers. Mushrooms from the forest have been popular, too.

This tram track re-do may not seem like much, but they began pulling up track the first of the week, and the tram was running on new track by Saturday! (We ride this tram, and cross the tracks for groceries.)

Of course, we try to make contacts as we travel on the buses and interact with people, but those are not exactly Kodak moments. : )

I LOVE that you're getting pictures of the every day things of Russia.

I wish UDOT would work as fast as those track workers. :)
