One Day From the Life of a Russian Farmer

Vasiliy Ivanovich is a former miner. Now he lives in the countryside and really enjoys his lifestyle. He can’t imagine himself without everyday labor. Let’s spend the whole day with him and see what he usually does.

In the morning he drinks coffee and watches the news. He says that his kitchen is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. He has a stove, a refrigerator and a TV set. Everything is made with his own hands.

Tosha sometimes comes to Vasiliy’s place to have a meal. Actually, it’s not only Vasiliy who considers himself the cat’s master but also the owners of the 20 nearest houses. The sly cat enters all the houses one by one and cleans out the given bowls with food. In winter, though, he mostly hangs out in Vasiliy’s house.

Which inside is very like a city flat. Here is a toilet and a shower cubicle.

  1. This guy must’ve got a generous pension, he’s got it made. He’ll probably live to be 108, he’s got balance in his life, a little work, a little rest, good food, a few beers, a little more work, relax with friends, go to bed early.

  2. Now, that is what we call “Russian plumbing” and electricity distribution here 😀
    OK, he is retired and has enough time to beutify his garden – good luck and good health!
