    Some purchases. This animal isn't so simple as it seems. In seller's words all adults identified it like a rabbit, and all children - like a cat. Why? I think children are more attentive to detail. Rabbits haven't got long tail :-).

    Great dessert known as soldier's cake.

    Seeing the toy cat got my thinking of the dogs in the british clay animation series "rex the runt" :-)

    I agree. Learning about other riders and their world is very cool.

    2 beautiful old towns, Vladimir and Suzdal, about 200 km from Moscow.

    Very picturesque roads and rural landscapes.

    Two men are thinking how to use a sunwatch. Oh these inquiring minds :-)

    Landscapes again. Soothing. Love this.

    Then I headed for Vladimir. It's 150 years older than Moscow, year of foundation - 990. They had time until the numbers became four-digit.

    This boy played violin and I just was listening sitting on the lawn. For an hour. He'd chose right place.

    The way to Suzdal

    Suzdal is much smaller than Vladimir but very cozy and soulful.

    I found these paintings on a bench. Somebody had lost them. Interesting style to my mind.

    Social contrasts as always. Touristic service and real life after the gates.

    Thank you for taking the time to post. This is why we ride. Travelers can see the history of a place, the beauty and the commonality of people and for a while visit s world they will probably never get to experience.
