Pushkin, what a enchanting little town. It is named after one of Russia’s most famous poets, Alexander Pushkin, who spent many years studying there. The town itself is full of history, palaces and parks. We took a day trip from St. Petersburg on the oldest railway in Russia and spent our time wandering around, admiring the colors and grand buildings, on the most perfect fall day. As we were strolling around one of the parks, we started to notice everyone carrying around bunches of leaves. Soon we saw that they were using them to make autumn leaf crowns to celebrate the season. It’s not a holiday or a formal celebration, just a fun activity that people like to do during this time of year. One nice woman made our day by letting us try on her crown for just a minute! It’s the little things in life. And I'm easily amused.
