No dermist! Next to that tank was a guy selling stuff out of his Lada. It’s quite common in Russia to see cars parked at the side of the road with people selling their wares from them. Mostly it’s home grown produce like potatoes, watermelons, onions etc.. Sometimes мёд or home made juice.

At the top end of the scale, full stalls are laid out, painted in bright colours and they look beautiful. At the other end is a knackered Lada with a bucket of spuds on the bonnet. This guy had something completely different. He was a taxidermist, and petty good at it too. He’d got a small sample for sale, along with some handmade sheath knives. Very tempting, but as I explained I don’t have the space. (I also have poor Yorick, who’s amazingly been allowed to cross 3 borders so far!).

He was a nice bloke but I didn’t catch his name. Good luck selling your stuff mate, it’s very good!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
