Passport to Adventure (1)


Passport to Adventure is a yearly fair organized by the UNL Cass County extension. There was an exhibition of various Russian things, an open table of Russian food (that included shuba, sukhari, semechki, and other tasty stuff) a bliny baking presentation and two little lectures about the life in Russia (delivered by the woman who had lived five years in Samara) and Russian fairy tales and their characters (delivered by the Russian Club). We also dressed in Russian costumes and I presented a little fairy tale the Turnip.

Here are the photos:

Ksenia is a real Russian beauty and showed how to bake blynis. Michael was teaching kids to write their name in Cyrillic characters. I was doing “the Turnip” and showcasing Russian stuff.  It was a good fair and lot of people came thanks to great efforts of Diane Mayfield and her team.
