... felt much more Soviet than anywhere I've been in Russia, with several war memorials displaying the soviet red star and old soviet style shops, cafés and even the house numbers on the houses. The village is called Leo Tolstoy. For those of you into literature you will be fully aware that Tolstoy is Russia's favourite son who wrote War and Peace.

He starts us off with a few warm up exercises to get comfortable with having ...
