Day 19 : Surviving Suzdal

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.

I watch.
