Travel photos : Russia 2007 : Holmi festival

Pustye Holmi festival

Going to festivals isn't really one of my favourite activities. However, that's where we ended up. Pustye Holmi [ru] is an annual free festival in Kaluga oblast, Russia (a bit more than one hundred kilometres from Moscow to the Southwest). Music was mostly etno or hippy.

We stayed at the festival two nights and two days. The festival was longer, but I was happy to go on toward river Volga which was the destination of our trip.
