New Jerusalem in Summer

Now that the weather is much better it really makes Moscow unattrative so we’ve been trying to get out of the city as much as possible. Last Saturday we made another trip to New Jerusalem monastery as it is not that far away and fairly easy to get to. If you will remember, we also went to this monastery in the winter of 2008.
