The Center of Social and Psychological Assistance and Legal Support for the Victims of Discrimination and Homophobia “Maximum” has been found guilty of “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations to minors” on the group’s VK page, and fined 100 th. roubles (about $1500 at the current exchange rate).
Picked up 5 fruiting bodies of Brain Fungus (Gyromitra esculenta) yesterday near Luvenga. Intend to eat them today.
Since this mushroom is of somewhat controversial edibility I want to say possible good by to friends and clients. (I do intend to boil it twice before consuming though.)

Even though they may look cute, feeding cubs is not a good idea, for doing so makes them see us as a source of food, which is one small step from being food.
This will be the second event of the sort, organized by LavkaLavka Farmers’ Coop, this time also supported by the Murmansk Region government. During the event local food will be presented, as well as touristic opportunities in the Kola Peninsula. A special program for children is said to be planned too. The ultimate aim of the event is to get the community pull itself out of the situation of an economic and social disaster by turning towards taking part in the tourism industry. Festival’s VK page >>
Foreigners, from what I see, ARE allowed in Teriberka without having to go through any permit-obtaining rituals. But feel free to ask me to double check on that subject should you seriously consider that destination.
