Дед Мороз и Снегурочка 2014

 Zelf пельмени en suikeraardappeltjes maken, spelletjes doen, kadootjes krijgen,
sneeuwballen gooien, zilveren ijskristallen knippen en lekkers eten - bij Project Kultura in Westervoort weten ze wel hoe je dat doet!

Спорт в русском изобразительном искусстве

Een verzameling kunst over sport. Het Russisch museum in St Petersburg maakt ook virtuele tentoonstellingen en dit is er één van.

Leuk om door te bladeren.

 As I said below, Russian accordeons are the best in the world, and, of course, have a great tradition.

Russische danseres krijgt Nederlandse prijs

Friday, 3 October 2014


I will nòt show you the other pics I found, but I can assure you - they were having a good time...
Anyway - then I remembered that the best accordeons (we call them pull-bag: "trekzak") traditionally were made in Italy ànd Russia.
Next visit I will definitely try and buy a баян, if I can find one.

Москва - Бенуа - Царское Село

The curse of the net: I got some info from Maxima Hotel Moscow about Anna Mons. Became interested in the painter Benois, and landed in Tsarskoye Selo. Nice!

...where are some really nice piano's (not only royals!)

Челябинск (Дзюдо)

 Yes, I know: JUDO, not wrestling. And I really like judo, (also did some, once upon a time...) but in my drawings I only use cotton as pepper on the meat, to enhance, not to hide.

Фестиваль "Московское варенье"...

...тоже в Нимегене!
Because, after these troublesome weeks I needed something sweet and nice, something Russian.
This week in Moscow: the jam festival - and I present you here: blinis with jam. Top: blueberries, bottom: plum (both with smetana of course).

Unlikely friendship

After WWII two giants were able to start the friendship between two all-time enemies. And became also personal friends, of course, because they were real men.

(For the younger ones: left is Charles de Gaulle, from France, and right Konrad Adenauer, from Germany.)

 I  found and stole these nice pictures at eeehrm... you'll have to look at Googles pictures ВДНХ because there are many more of this 1939-1941 exhibition, very interesting!
