Russian Summer

on the datcha in Kazan, Russia: "Nicht die Musik, nicht die Literatur, auch nicht der Wodka ist die gr�sste kulturelle Errungenschaft Russlands � wobei man �ber den Wodka streiten k�nnte �, sondern die Datscha. Datscha, das bedeutet R�ckzug aus dem Leben in der Stadt, vor Schmutz, Geschwindigkeit, Korruption, vor Mangel, Hunger, K�lte, Armut. Die Datscha ist ein hybrider Ort, zwischen Land und Stadt, zwischen Haus und Garten, zwischen bodenloser Melancholie und ausgelassener Lebensfreude (die in Russland traditionell nah beieinanderliegen), zwischen grenzenloser Faulheit und unb�ndiger Kreativit�t.
