A Matryoshka Moment

I can't believe I've lived in this house for exactly 4 months and have not yet thought to unpack my Russian tchotchkes. Among these is my Matryoshka doll. I got it from a local artisan in Chita, and I chose this one specifically for the way it embodies my Russian experience: the colors, red and gold, and the musical instruments that I had seen and heard during the folk dance group performance.
Welcome home my little babushkas.
