OK - this is for JenniferTN and anyone who wants to see what a Russian oven looked like; one you could sleep on top of!
Thanks to the State museum of Folk Architecture and life, Belarus for the photo.
I've been to Belarus for work but never to a private home. Minsk was a very nice city, where I was, but outside Minsk considerably rougher. Having been to Russia and Belarus definitely gave me a deeper understanding of the big picture story and the russian mind set.ReplyDelete
Thank you for posting this. I wouldn't mind curling up with Shura up there but that's a long way to the ground.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for this pic and the video. I am currently reading The Bronze Horseman and was having a bit of trouble imagining the bed over the oven.ReplyDelete
(Got this link at the Outlander Book Club, BTW, where I am audiobooklover.)
