Photo for August 28, 2006.

I came across this photograph on They have a 'photo of the week' section that hosts weekly photos from life in Russia, mostly from Moscow.

This photo really cracks me up. I wonder where the tourist is from. Probably Volgograd.

For the people who haven't been in Moscow: Arbat is a pedestrian only street in central Moscow where artists sell their wares. It's probably the most pleasant place to be in Moscow. When I was there the last time, there were quite a few Armenian artists making a living doing portraits. This was during the pre-independence era. I'm sure there are a lot more Armenians making a living there since a lot of people have emigrated to Moscow.

Yura at his furniture workshop in Vanadzor.

This workshop was originally created to hire disabled people with the help of Gtoutyoun. There was one worker who couldn't do his job properly but I don't think it was due to disability but because of dumbness.
