While some people are mastering nanotechnologies and launching satellites, others live an old life or a bit worse. Only about 100 people remained in the village of Novoyemakovka in the Omsk region. They have no Internet or mobile connection, and guest
workers do not stay there for long. But they have a farm where villagers work. But we want to tell about one Russian woman, Lubov Andreevna Lavrentyeva, the pride of the whole region, repeated winner of various livestock competitions.
2013 is the year of a snake according to the Eastern calendar. In one village of Yakutia locals made the symbol of the year from... cow manure. Now the weird cobra stands in the centre of the village and promises to
bring happiness and prosperity in 2013. To make the sculpture they needed 300-400 kg of cow manure. The villagers themselves and guests of the Yakut village like to take photos with the manure snake.
