As soon as this girl saw me walking past her house with a camera she did her utmost to draw my attention and started posing, playing hide-and-seek and calling me back every time I tried to walk away. During our short encounter I took numerous photos and found it difficult to decide which of them to choose to upload here.
I found people in Lahic very approachable but above all extremely curious. No wonder, as most of the time I was the only tourist in the village apart from one other girl (also Polish, also travelling solo) who visited for one night.
I spent several days in Lahic and after the first two hours I had more friends there than I have in my own town. Every time I walked through the village every two minutes I had to stop to reply to the question "Kak Dyewa?" (Russian for "how are you", or more precisely "how are things") which usually served as an invitation to a much longer conversation.
