Yesterday we went to Vidnozheno village for Zhatva. They celebrate the harvest holiday a lot earlier here than in Russia. It was great, though. Finally a day that really felt like fall! I was cold all day long, and after all this heat, that felt wonderful. The service was outside, in the bright fall-ish sunshine, with a cold wind blowing, and a great view of the surrounding fields and village.

It was too bright for a good photo.

Asya's second lunch
First she sat with me and ate a huge amount. Then, when the women who had served cleared everything off and set up their own lunch, Asya crawled over and joined them.
