Saturday, April 6th – traffic clogs the Enthusiastic Escape Route east.
2hrs in to our road trip and we are still bathing in the urban fumes of articulated lorries on the artery.
And starving – starving in a carful of undiscerning carnivores who like fast-food.
Mc Donalds it is then… I get culinary satisfaction from a box of green salad and some chips unilaterally declared vegan.
Suzdal is definitely the capital of something
I know Suzdal is famous for churches. And if there are churches, there are Lent menus.
As it happens, the nearby town of Vladimir is the religious hotspot.
I am in the capital of Russian heritage…
No vegetables? No problem…
We feast on borsch and blini.
Well they feast.
