What is it about the Russian landscape?
From there Putin takes us on exploits and he rode bare chested on horseback.
Apparently, the composer and pianist, Rachmanioff encamped in the countryside for the summer holidays where the traditional culture forever influenced his romantic music making. He never forgot his homeland and tried to recreate aspects of it during his life of bourgeois exile. His summer residence with ornamental timber work has a garden setting and has been nicely rebuilt (recorded in the movie by Tony Palmer).

I'm sorry but I'm a bit confused...is this a photo of Russia?

Whatever, it's quite striking and I like it a lot!

And yes, Ocala is considered (at least by the city fathers) to be the "horse capital of the world"!
