Wall Mural - Kazan
Kazan is the capital of The Republic of Tatarstan (about 800Ks east of Moscow). The people speak Tatar. And the predominant faiths are Sunni Islam and Eastern Orthodoxy. 55% are Muslim hence all the mosques and this wonderful mural with the Mullahs.
Day 44, 10th day of my journey across Russia. The temperature was down to -12. Skies were heavy and threatening. I wore all my clothing. Fleecy pants under my jeans, 2 long sleeved thermals, sweater, Buffalo mountain top and my cheap Ukrainian ski jacket, yet still the wind chilled me to the bone. I was on my way to the Kremlin but first I needed my Mc. D fix. 2 coffees and a muffin so i detoured thru the small side streets and came across this wonderful mural. The joys of travel.
