The mountain rises above the Central Asian town of Kadamzhay and is called Kitovka in Russian. The mountain was dubbed Kitovka by Russian settlers in the second half of the 20th century, when Kyrgyzstan was part of the USSR.
The sun sets on the opposite side of Mt Kitovka.
Usually most people in Russia are joyless and sullen, except when they are a bit tight or drunk 😀 . Just like this man for example, who was photographed by my little nephew in the midsummer this year.
The town of Vyazma is an important railroad junction between Moscow and the rest of Europe. I live in this town and here are four pictures which I took on August 1st this year, that is 12 days ago, as I was seeing my brother off on the train to Moscow.

These 3 photos were taken in April this year. This is Moscow.
We drove through Moscow twelve days ago, my junior brother at the wheel of his Chevrolet. I took this shot of Savyolovskiy railway station building right out of the car.
There was a nice sunny evening and later a picturesque sunset in the village where I live. I decided to take some photos and publish them here.
When I lived in a small settlement in Central Asia till August 2004, I often had such an opportunity to enjoy great sunsets, especially in spring and summer. Sunsets were so beautiful there after the rain, the mountains surrounding our settlement used to turn orange and red and in April there were also blossoming apricot trees, which smelt much better than any expensive perfume.
