Audrey Indombe from Congo and Anatoliy nicknamed "Troublemaker" found each other in the Internet. Their feelings became so deep that Audrey gave up her career of an actress and came to Chelyabinsk. Anatoliy saw a picture of Audrey in Facebook and could not resist from writing to her. They were communicating for two months being
thousands of kilometers away from each other. Then Anatoliy invited Audrey to his native city and sent her money for a trip. His friends were laughing at him - they were sure Audrey was one of many fraudsters who just wanted to get some money. But Anatoliy felt she would not betray him. And she did not.
Today we are going to come to Dagestan to see how real carpets are made there (with no artificial colorants). It is a complicated, expensive and laborious process. It takes about two years to make one carpet like this. They gather herbals and roots, dry, grind and color them. When this is done they start making a carpet. The coloring shop is located in a
provate house, on the second floor lives a family and hopefully they do not suffer much from what happens on the first floor. As a rule they color threads once a month only or even more seldom. The boiling process takes place in a basement, where they have several boilers. On hot days it is very hard to be inside. Like in a sauna.
Pictures from the mansion of the Brusnitsyns in Saint-Petersburg. The owner of the mansion had a leather production in the city back in the eighteenth century. The place is notorious for its mirror which allegedly was taken from the place where Count Dracula was buried. People who looked in that mirror told about a strange feeling and
subsequently got into trouble. When it happened with a daughter of the factory owner the mirror was hidden in the pantry. But many years after it returned to the mansion and was hung at the office of the Deputy Director who disappeared without a trace several weeks after... So it was decided to nail the office up.
