Serb Fest - Part 2

Spooky Rasputin look-alike holy man giving me either a blessing or a curse.   Only time will tell.

My curiosity over the Fall Festival and the church was sated today.  Doubt if I go back but it was a fun way to spend a couple hours on a boring Sunday afternoon.

These are the fields, small towns and by-ways of the Midwest.  This flight, taking back to Kitschland from a few weeks up North in June was one of those late afternoon, night flights that are pretty awesome.







The cloud formations confirmed the cockpit announcement that there was some foul weather ahead.  I tried to get some lightening in the clouds but never saw any.  The ride was probably as bumpy as I've ex…
