Status: We wake early in our 1950's Soviet bedroom. Our hosts could not be more hospitable. They are from Russia and have lived here since 1970. It is effectively a semi-self-sufficient small holding but has all the creature comforts as well as pigs and chickens. (Sounds like home!). We are treated to another hearty breakfast of omelette with pork crackling and some sort of goulash style egg fry up and gherkins. They seemed surprised I did not want any Vodka! ...

Status Update: After 10 hrs sleep we are fortified and spirits are high. At our home stay we have met Rex the dog who lives in the "Rex House" and been proudly shown the recent garden ornament purchase ( 3 fake storks from Wilkovitch).

Sightseeing update: Today, highlights included a minor castle and ...

This was the Big Day. I repeated to myself the traveler's mantra about the need for flexibility. But with a history of so many roadblocks (both real and metaphorical) we agreed that if we didn’t get to Shalanki today we’d give up and return to Germany. So the stakes were high.

At breakfast Yelena was all smiles now that the police were gone and there was no brain tumor. "Today at 11:00 for sure you go," she said with ...
