Nearby village - Smelizh.

There are no stores in my village, it is too small for that. The nearest store is in a neigboring village, Smelizh, 8km away. The store is open only twice per week, but if a villager needs something urgently, the sellerwoman, Katya, will open the store as a favor. She is one of the most important figures in this village.

Every time I go there I feel nostalgia for my childhood: the store changed very little over years. The only difference is that during my childhood there were no oranges or bananas...

This is a general overview of the village in December and below is the road I take every day to take my sons to school in Smelizh.
