Today we talked to some old believers. They are the old sect of the Russian Orthodox church. We talked about their religion, our religion at home and how things are different. One thing that was interesting was that the boys did basically did all the talking (even when prof. Lanoux asked "what is woman's role in the religion?"). We then toured a HUGE, old Russian bunker. It smelled pretty bad and they were still in the middle of rennovating it. It was 60 meters underground and we had to walk down 18 flights of stairs to get there. They told us about the history of atomic warfare and showed us where it attached to the Russian metro. They then told us that they sometimes rent it out for parties and fashion shows... strange
