Beautiful post. Inspiring, too, I love the idea of keeping on sharing meals with the people I love sharing meals with in life. Will have to get my food-loving family to bring my mom's urn to the table next time we're together at a holiday meal :-)
Enjoying your blog as usual, and cool following your sovjet discoveries.
The bedst, Kim


Cemetery is really that place where people can come to their passed away relatives and “to sit” and “to talk” with them. To share thoughts with them and to ask advice (Don’t take this phrase word for word, please). There is a table and a branch close to each grave, so people really come and spend time there whenever they want. Sure, it depends on the person how often she/ he comes to the cemetery but people often go there on the date of birth and death of the passed away person as well as in the special day which is the next Sunday after Easter. Usually next week after Easter is always cold, windy, and rainy but it is practically always good weather on the next Sunday.

I should say that people bring not only meals or vodka to the cemetery. Everything depends on the things that the passed away person liked. People obviously bring odd quantity of flowers. As well they can bring toys or sweets if it is child’s grave. They can leave glass of vodka or some cigarettes on the man’s grave, etc.
