Moreover, we can use it as a great tool for teaching; improving fine motors skills and developing cooperative playing. In this article, we will share our experience of building HO train table for educative play with children. Continue reading Building an HO train table

Dolmens

We visited a place with dolmens in 2007 year near Tuapse town, Krasnodarskiy kray (Russia, Black sea). Of course that place was adapted for tourists (we knew it), so we were little bit skeptical...

In spite there are many versions nobody knows who, why or why build the dolmens...

Watch our video from there: Continue reading Dolmens
