The two hour bus ride from Perm (still in the Urals), then 2.5k hike along a country road to the village of ‘Kuchino’ was a dream…
I love the simple act of “travelling” and the scenery was incredible!!
Today was also a good day for hunting. Hunting that elusive photo to capture “yellow” – so often prevented by a dirty train or bus window or my limited phone camera.
A Russian girl once told me that there are hundreds of different words in the Russian language for the hundreds of different pines they have in Russia, but frustratingly only one word in English, ‘pine’. Today I’m inclined to believe her!
The ‘laa laa lala la la’ smurf song hummed all of its own accord as I strolled along happily (and unafraid following ‘The Talk’) swinging my water bottle…
Here are some of my meagre hunting trophies, supplemented with some shots of Perm itself.

Unfortunately, my reasons for going to Kuchino were not so happy, as you can see here.
