Daunshifterom life in the Russian hinterland
• daunshifterom life in the Russian hinterland
Igor had once owned a small firm for setting up computers, and then headed the department at the bank. But three years ago, he dropped everything and moved to a remote mountain village, where there are even mobile. True, there is a dedicated online Igor. It also harvests the herbs and keeps a herd of a dozen horses.
Pelevin's like a real hero, Igor drink tincture of mushroom and interested in occult teachings.
In the early morning, on the way to Igor, I saw a motorcycle man lying nearby.
It turned out to a local resident, "tired" and decided to rest. Nearby lay a "desolate cause" fatigue.
The small village where he lives, Igor, is located in the foothills of Iremel, the highest mountain in the Southern Urals. The village is so deaf, that does not even have cellular service.
Silence, all the inhabitants of the mowing. Igor himself calls this place "Kolingrad"
Home Igor - classic "pyatistenok"
Igor - genial host (for friends)
Igor immediately shows me harvested herbs. Here, for example, willow, also known as Ivan-tea
Ivan-tea is also called Koporye. The tea is harvested in the pristine meadows near Iremel, then dried and fermented in different varieties. Tea is quite pleasant to the taste and have a tonic and healing effect. Igor sells it over the Internet.
The alcohol tincture of mushroom. If you add a few drops of tea, you will superenergetik.
I drink a cup of this tea in the morning and mow the hay all day without getting tired, Igor. The main thing - do not overdo it, otherwise begin glitches, smiling Igor.
Chest of drawers in the bedroom.
Yard. Prepare sleighs in summer, and a motor-plow - winter
Kitten. One 4.
And this baby is
In the garden a huge pumpkin. Handy for Halloween
The polycarbonate greenhouse. Harvest much, nowhere to put huge tomatoes
In an economy of 10 horses (three adults, the rest of the foals and the same age)
Igor drives horse riding in the mountains of the Southern Urals. To him come from all over Russia!
Now the horses grazing on summer pastures. Sometimes they have to search within a radius of 30 km. Igor complains that there is no mobile, it could be attached to the horses GPS-sensors to monitor their movements.
In order to provide hay for the winter 10 horse, you need to prepare 60 tons of dry hay!
The farm is one, a relationship, but it is still left in the city, as Igor said.
Igor as people with higher technical education and mystical-humanitarian-minded, interested in a strange mixture of technological shamanism and rustic cyberpunk. Something at the intersection of religion, culture, science and computer science.
His own doctrine called Edinomir and is based on three basic things - sun, nature forces and mechanisms. The tattoo, which can be clearly seen these symbols.
Good Luck Charm at the entrance of a house.
The installation of agricultural equipment with.
Soviet clock, iron pot, a piece with spokes, wrapped around the head of the adult foal to wean him from the mare.
Skull cow, aluminum chain, candle and wolf skins.
Doll voodoo connected to ampervoltmetru.
Although Igor quiet and friendly, but not always finds understanding among the locals. Just strange - so strange, they say. I do not drink vodka - at all suspicious. You can, for example, he has to steal something (not just vanished horses)
But like a resident of the Wild West, he can always stand up for themselves
video surveillance and alarm system.
houses an internet through ADSL, shares on your network with a straightforward password 12345678, hardly anyone of the villagers know what Wi-Fi.
Linux installed on the laptop. Igor administers several sites.
I think it's very symbolic illustration of the lifestyle daunshifterom
Downshifting (born downshifting, the vehicle switches to a lower gear, as well as slowing or weakening of a process.) - a term denoting a philosophy of life "for the sake of life itself," "rejection of others' goals." Akin to the concept of simple living (Eng. The simple life), as well as simplification in the religious philosophy of Leo Tolstoy. Ranking to daunshifterom tend to abandon the pursuit of common advocated benefits, such as the constant increase in physical capital, career, and so on. E., Focusing on life for themselves and / or family.
