third visit to the orphanage in Mstera had 6 of November - Birthday of the Moscow Automobile Plant named after Lenin Komsomol. By this time we knew that the interests of local residents do not just diverse, they are still not fixed. Draw cars like two boys. And they still have to learn to pay attention to some details. At the same ones that distinguish the figure "Moskvich" of "Lada" and "Zaporozhets." While more car for the kids - it's just a mechanical thing on four wheels. As the toys available in the children's home, they know that there is a "Ferrari", "Lamborghini", "Jeep" ... what you do not see - do not know. No place to get information, because of the Internet in their abode there, and the library in the local school, alas, is far from the standards that exist in the schools since the Soviet Union. Baby comprehensive books on the art they no longer hold as the magazines "Technology towards the youth", "Model Construction", "Be Your Own Master" ... etc.
Movies available in the orphanage video library, as far from those that affect the development of the mind and intelligence. Basically - primitive Hollywood picture, where the whole plot is built on the running around, moving, and humor - by idiotic facial expressions and ridiculous lows. November 6 here watched "Home Alone". From this we can conclude that the overall development of children lag behind those raised in normal families for 2 - 3 years. So that our visits to the children's home there was the task of filling the information vacuum at the local guys.
There are children among lovers of active leisure. They tend to spend more time on the playground. There is a children's home and his "Kulibin" - minor "specialist" whose hands are good friends with any tool, and the head perfectly solves the problem by repairing the wiring or the tap. In this our arrival it was constructed with Michael elektrofontanchik the aquarium. We made less than an hour. . Moreover, no short circuit and "walks" on de-energized the building
Since the "Moskvich" on this trip could not participate - he had already embarked on body repair, it had to provide its virtual presence. Firstly, he was a poster with pictures of the most interesting project to restore or maintain the vehicles emblems MZMA, AZLK and IL (second poster has been pictures with "Muscovites", borrowed from different sites). Secondly, in bad weather days, sitting at home I thought to do to the car kind of "family album." In it, each spread has been dedicated or "ancestors" My AZLK-2137, or the events of our life together with him. The idea - those "visual aids" will help save children from the interest in the car during the cold period. Until then, until the warmer and the days become longer, and 19 kilometers from Mstera to Vyaznikov in the cabin of the school bus will not seem so long.
Historic reversals album contains a photo of epoch-making car brands and images corresponding to a given time, supplemented from my family archive photos. That is - a collage on the eras and events

Good luck and good winter!
