Christmas fairy tale on Baikal is waiting for you!

Absolutely beautiful :t
But I have a suspicion that the climate is a tick too cold for my taste ;-)

Some of this artwork is amazing, sorry I can do any for you any normal Christmas from OZ, we have been getting days between 25 and 35 degrees C so a white Christmas is not possible here.

Hutch,

wonderful Christmas pictures, indeed. Here is an interesting video with images from the Polish multi-instrumentalist Czesław Niemen about the beautiful Baikal. It's a famous Russian Traditional that I learned at school. Enjoys it.

Yes, Lake Baikal is truly magnificent but sad to say its very hard to get to. From OZ its a trip to Vladivostok to travel the Trans Siberian Railway, a stop somewhere near Lake Baikal then find out how to travel the old train line that goes along the edge of the lake. I have seen some good video of the lake, some of the remaining villages and boating footage but like JJ, it would be too cold for me as I come from the near tropics. I am good in the heat up to a bit over 40c but the cold would kill me.

God Jul folks.

Here's a story focusing on the important things in life again.



The house in the image above is called a stabbur. This is basically for food storage and the mother of the farmstead controls the key. There are many of these old farms in Norway protected as antiquity. They need maintenance from time to time and this has to be done the old fashion way. In one of these cases a few planks needed to be fixed behind the stabbur and the situation was as in many of these cases the mother have a good view of the house from the kit-chen (sic) window.

They noticed when looking at one of the old planks it was hanging from a natural splinter at the top and cleverly fitted with a somewhat hidden pin at the bottom so this needed some further investigation.

Scandinavians tend to keep good record over most things so the people there kept a log over all maintenance done to the house. Turned out this was done back in the 1600 so now they have the name of the man who did the work. They also managed to figure out the layout for the inside of the house at the time and yes, the honey-lased rolls was located right behind the plank  :biggrin:
