Blog 18, walk the block

Walk the block around, look the windows in! It’s a saying that my mentor Chuck Stormes told me about years ago, when  I was apprenticing as a young saddle maker. It seemed a fitting title to this brief post regarding the window trim assortments I have seen so far. Yes, you could say that I walked the block around…………and looked the windows in. I hope you enjoy this little photographic journal of eastern european window dressing. These walks took place in Russia, Ukraine and Moldova so far.

  1. Hey wisee,s, glad your with us. Food in mongolia is strait off hells menu…..that alone should make folks find jesus. Food in everything after mongolia has just gotten better. A lot of soup so far, also plimeni which is like little meat filled raviolis. Best served with sour cream…..but often with maggot gagging mayo. Bread in russia is often dark sour rye which i love and pine hates. Romania though is the beginning of culture, and we see influence of europe and turkish foods. Good stuff, pray, i need more christ in my life and less blog fights. Good to know you guys. Are along for the journey.
