This week I have been stung by nettle many times, eaten buckets of raspberries and found several kilos of mushrooms. I’m sure it’s getting repetitive now, hearing about how many things I have found in the forest and eaten…but I swear that it is a totally normal thing here! Mushrooms in Russia come in a wide range of varieties and flavors, and can be fried and served with mash (which is how I like them) or pickled.
Something I always love about being here is that I can actually enjoy spending time outdoors. In Australia I would never just go for a walk in the bush like its no big deal, let alone walk in long grass – or even lie in it for that matter! Basically it’s a good day when I have gone for a run in the park and haven’t encountered a brown snake on the footpath.
