Bateman’s is a beautiful old sandstone house surrounded by Sussex countryside. It was bought by Rudyard Kipling and his wife who fell in love with the house at first sight, it became a family home.
The rooms are much as he left them: artifacts from his Eastern adventures, a book lined study, his Nobel prize certificate for literature, a phonograph playing music.
An amazing garden with an orchard, herb garden, pond and wildflower meadow surrounds the house.
International historical reconstruction festival called “Times and Epochs” takes place in Moscow every summer. Hunderd of reenactors from different countries recreated various epochs from Antiquity to the 20th century on the streets and boulevards of Moscow. I took some pictures of “Russians in Paris in 1814” which was dedicated to the foreign campaign of 1813-1814, during which the Russian army occupied Paris. Confrontation gave place to a peaceful life many parts of which were represented at this site including different professions of that time, food, costumes, uniaxial cart, ship and horses.
Maya people from Mexico were also visiting Moscow as a part of that historicl festival.
