Floodplain villages. Pavshino

In the Shemogodsky rural settlement several floodplain villages. All of them are united by the river Shemoksa. It makes no sense to describe them all. But about another village worth mentioning. This village Pavshino. There are many permanent residents.
Grandparents live their lives. Summer visitors come for the summer season.

The Crane Well is a symbol of these villages.

Something reminds me of it... Oh, yes, a similar situation was in Shatrovo and Nikulino on the opposite bank of the river. More residents - less comfort. The roads are broken, in some places the dirt has not dried up. On the street in front of houses a lot of rubbish is lying around. I will not show you this, of course. Not because I wanted to... Some local residents were against me taking pictures of them and their surroundings.

Most of them are still friendly and we even visited some of them.

Local natives are more friendly than visitors.

Two grandmothers live in Pavshino: one is the great-granddaughter of the founder of the Shemogod carving, and the other worked in a furniture factory, where this thread was used.

Well, the most important feature of the village of Pavshino is the arrival of several families from large cities for permanent residence.

Here they are engaged in agriculture and animal husbandry. They live by peasant concepts. They refused to be photographed.

This concludes the story of the floodplain villages. It took me only a few villages to visit to understand their basic principle. I repeat once again: the fewer people in the village, the more cultured it looks, the more likely it is that it has retained its original appearance. All of them are in the flooded area and in case of flood water will be on the window. All villages have a bad field road and cannot reach them in the off-season.

These rural views are very impressive, thanks for that!
It's like looking back at a world that seems to have been lost for a long time in the so-called industrialized countries.
