A couple of weeks ago, my family and I celebrated Hari Raya after a month of fasting during the holy month of Ramadan.

I would like to tell you about the Zhuzhalka. Zhuzhalka is the slag waste that remains after coal mining. But in this story, in our case, we have another meaning for this word.

The name of the project was influenced by the geographic specialization of Donetsk.
I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don.

Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.
