The days now are the shortest in a year. My home village Chuhrai, population of 9 including my family, looks colorless and melancholic. I already wrote about my village in this post
(Translator's note: also you can read more about people and history of the village in a book The Storks' Nest, written by Igor's wife, nature writer Laura Williams)
And this is the border of the neibouring village, Smeglizh. This is the road I use every work day to take my two sons to school.
