Family Roots

A small town of 200,000, it used to be blocked to foreign travellers because it manufactured naval materials. Its real and only beauty lies in a remarkable seaside park that was constructed 80 of so years ago. Founded by Peter the Great, it was to be a port city that would give Russia a sea avenue to Europe. Local folk are poor and struggling to get by. My cousin lives in a small brick 100 year old run down house. She lives with her daughter;and, her son, wife and 3 year old baby. She has a small booth at a bazaar where she sells towels from Turkey. Her husband passed away in November of 2006. She is a relative from my mother's side.

Sweet Crayfish

On the way to Taganrog, peddlers sell them on the roadside. Very expensive but ... oh my .... sweet crayfish.
