Top of the unknown church.
This one for Midnitebara (Akita) : "I know buses are almost the same everywhere on the planet..."
So this is the way Moscow buses looks like.

Poklonnaya Gora (Hill) at Night .
My friend Max sent me a bunch of photos of Poklonnaya Gora at night. Thanks Max!
Countless times I've seen this place, but never at night...
Poklonnaya Gora is the area of monumental museum to the Russian victory in the Great Patriotic War.
Fountains in front of Victory Museum.

My past week. Maslenitsa Pt.1
It is an old Russian tradition to celebrate the arrival of Spring during "Maslenitsa".
Maslenitsa is one pagan holiday that's still celebrated in Russia today, that holiday marks the coming of spring. During the week of Maslenitsa people eat buttery bliny, which represent the golden sun of spring.
It is traditional to build on the snow fortresses and to burn a scarecrow of the winter.
The forgiveness sunday is the last day of the week and an opportunity to ask relatives and friends for forgiveness.
So guys here some photos i took at the holidays, it is about 50 km away from Moscow ))) enjoy ! Scarecrow, snow fortress etc. )))
