Sleeping on Top of the Stove

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.

  1. 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.

  2. Thank you for posting this. I wouldn't mind curling up with Shura up there but that's a long way to the ground.

  3. 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.
