Russia! Russia! I see you now, from my wondrous, beautiful past I behold you! How wretched, dispersed, and uncomfortable everything is about you…

Combining some of my passions (photography, russia and farming) is this new audio slideshow by James Hill on the NY Times’ wesbsite- Russia, the Land. Some of the photos aren’t great, but it is definitely interesting to watch, especially if you’ve ever read any of the many great Russian novels about agrarian life there.

Someday I’ll make it there, and actually get the opportunity to use the Russian I worked so hard to learn.
