A Day of Mourning in Russia!

Svetlana travels this Metro almost everyday of her life and today she captured on film a Moscow in mourning.
One of the little known facts about this Metro bombing was that most of the victims are young adults suffering from massive internal injuries. That is because this was also known as the University line. (At least that is what I call it.) Students are traveling to the Moscow University to attend classes…
The massive internal injuries where caused in part by the fact that the explosives were designed on purpose to have excess shrapnel in them. The plastic explosive was embedded with nails, nuts, bolts and other small metal objects. Then when the explosion goes off it sends hundreds of projectiles in all directions to maximize injuries and death…
The dead and injured include students from around the world also. That information will be brought out later in time.

31 December: Ded Moroz in Metro!

As all you know in Russia we don’t have Santa Clause who maybe brings gifts to your kids at the Christmas. In Russia we have Grandfather Frost who puts gifts for our kids under Fir Trees. You can read more about our Russian New Year traditions here (Svet Sunday: New Year and Christmas in Russia!). But today I want you to show some pictures of Grandfather Frost (Ded Moroz) whom we met at metro at 31 of December.

It looks like he is going to tell “S Novym Godom!” (Happy New Year) to kids who celebrate New Year Ave in a hiking trip with their parents.

Paint The Trees In Russia!

I remember along time ago in America it was very common to paint the trees trunks white with a chalk paint. Just like they do in Russia.

Every once in a while in America you still see someone do this.

In Russia it is done at the start of spring everywhere and I think it looks great.

So clean and nice…
