A trip out of town

Sunday I took a trip out of town.  An 11 hour trip out of town to go shopping.  It was interesting but really I could have done with maybe a 3 hour trip instead.

Gzhel is a town, area and type of pottery about 60 km outside of the city.  There are several factories, a college for young people to learn how to paint the stuff and a TB sanitarium.  I bought all the above for about $45.
