Smoke Break


After 1,448 posts, it's time to take a little break. From our invasion of India to our leaving Lithuania, it's been an amazing adventure and more excitement is in store this summer as we migrate to Malaysia.

For now, the blog must rest. We're in the United States at the moment, doing a little training, seeing family, buying groceries at Harris Teeter. Blog potential, not so much.

Our death has been greatly exaggerated. Hello Talalay will be back, date unknown, most likely when we are abroad and the exotic travel begins again.

In the meantime, who knows, a random item may appear. Blog life is unpredictable.

Worker And War Grotto In Kiev

Right near Kiev's major WWII museum is a park with an unusual open air tunnel walkway that's lined with huge wall sculptures devoted to the major communist themes of triumph in work and revolution. It's an impressive jaunt.

Heading in.


Rearing up for the battle of a lifetime. Early equal rights. Not sure it's what the women had in mind.

Fighting for the old, infirm and extravagantly out-stretched.


Protecting the children. From the macho, shirtless steel workers?

"Let's go!"
