Siamese cat by the pond in an old Russian town Kirillov. The reflection in the pond is of one of the towers of Kirillo-Belozersky Monastery.
The Kirillo Belozersky Monastery used to be the largest monastery in Northern Russia. It was founded way back in 1397 on the bank of Lake Siverskoye. The founder was St. Kirill of Beloozero first dug a cave there and then a wooden chapel and loghouse for the monks.
Land Rover stuck in mud in the forest near Moscow in Russia. The fun begins when you take a four-wheel drive off road and drive it into a swamp. Took about an hour and another Land Rover to get it out.
Hamburger DOM – they call it the largest funfair in northern Germany. For me the best part was sausages and Glühwein (mulled wine). German sausages are the best in the world and Glühwein is good to keep you warm, it’s winter DOM, November 2008.
