Russia ABCs (2)

H, is for hockey: Russians love to play sports on the ice. Hockey is very popular there. People love to both play and watch hockey there. Because Russia stays cold almost all year, people can enjoy ice skating and sledding too!

I, is for icon: Icons are picture of gods painted on wooden panels. Russian Orthodox religion use icons to help them pray. Russia churches are full of them, and some people put them in their homes. Would you like to have one or two of them?

J, is for jeweled egg: Jeweled eggs are very beautiful eggs made with gold\ rubies\emralds and diamonds. They were made for czars. They are made and carved beautifully. Today, some people still make these beautiful eggs. Rich people buy them and give them to their friends on Easter! I wish I can have a few of these jeweled eggs! Don't you?

K, is for Kremlin: The Kremlin is a walled structure located in the heart of Moscow, Russia's capital city. The Kremlin is built more than 500 years ago! (So long!!!) The president works inside it, still! It must be cool! I want to go inside.

L, is for Lake Baikal: Lake Baikal is the deepest lake in the world! It's as deep as 1 mile in some places! (wow,wow,wow!) There are also a lot of animals living in the lake. 2,000 kinds to be exact, and 1,000 are found nowhere else! (I'm using a lot of exclamation marks here) It's such an interesting lake! I want to see all the unique animals there!

M, is for Moscow: Moscow is the biggest and the capital of Russia. (As I said before) More than 8 million people live here. The city is crowded. Most people only live in a small apartment with a bathroom and one bedroom. (It's really small, you can see that)

Okay, I've told you about 13 letters! Time to take a break!
