Kirill oiled the hinges on the front door of the cottage and now I cannot hear when people come or leave. What is a nuisance to some is music to others. A carload of people drove onto the monastery property this afternoon to do some photography which happens quite often. There is such a contrast between the open fields in front of the monastery building and the steep granite cliff immediately behind. Our task now is to get rid of the wild blackberry vines before they take over the entire property. There is another carload of people parked in the middle of the west field at this moment, waiting to see and photograph the meteorite shower that is to take place tonight. I hope they will not be disappointed.
