The Ice-Skating Babushka of Baikal



"When this 76-year-old Russian pensioner needs to herd her cows, she skates across the frozen waters of Lake Baikal to find them." Amazing woman and a beautiful video from Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (funded by the US).

Site for new flats - Wood End, Northolt

Car breakers yard (?) demolished, to be replaced with flats (Wood End)

Car breakers yard (?) demolished, to be replaced with flats (Wood End). It's situated alongside the Piccadilly Line near where Wood End Road meets Wood End Gardens, Northolt. There are more pictures on Flickr, showing the context. It's a pretty good location, all the better now for replacing the ramshackle car place. Though there is perhaps something to be said for ramshackle places, yes. But not that one.
