Our restrictions have been relaxed a bit and we can now go out a bit more. Older people still only at certain hours (unfortunately we come under 'older'). But I managed to go to Baza on my own the other day and my errand took me through the park.
The park was deserted. So weird. It is usually very busy with older people chatting on benches and children playing.

The stamps are really spectacular!
The one on the left celebrated the 1000th Anniversary Since the Reign of Yaroslav the Wise, 978-1054.
The middle stamps is entitled Before The Rain by Maksim Kisiliyov.
The stamp on the right is all about an epic film called The Rising hawk. I found this information about it:
The last stamp was issued in 2012 and is from an ongoing series of trees and plants.
That is it from me for today. I wish everyone a very happy T-Day and...
