August 13, 2009: Picnic dinner

Vicky mastura at partisan house Bbq shashlik Final day on the bog today. Natasha plans to only conduct one plot today, so we start a bit later to compensate for the late finish yesterday. We have breakfast at 9 am. Even though we have all enjoyed our time on the bog, we are also glad this is the final day. As a reward for our hard work, we are taken to a Partisan camp by a lake to enjoy our dinner tonight. The camp was used by local groups providing resistance to the invading Soviet forces. They built underground houses, banyas and kitchens. We explore the dwellings and take photos by the lake before sitting to a traditional dinner. They serve fish soup, and shashlik (kebabs). This is accompanied by rye bread, tomato, cucumber, bilberry juice and the obligatory celebratory vodka!
