One of the albums issued by the great Soviet photographer Vadim Gippenreiter simply had the title, Broad is My Motherland. A better description of Russia hasn’t been penned (do ignore Churchill’s ignorant and drunken bon mot, “A riddle wrapped up in an enigma”… that’s condescending and utterly false at base).

One of the islands in Fukuoka Prefecture is a cat’s paradise. The feral cats have the run of the fishing village, and the cats and people live together harmoniously.
