Russian Banya

Right now I am on the road with the lead singer of my favorite band Drusjki (We’re in California at the moment).  The trip so far has been so interesting – especially the experience I had in Portland couple days ago.  We stopped by Gera’s friend’s house, which has a Russian style sauna (banya) right by a river.  All of the half a dozen people that were there are musicians (except myself) – so there was lots of singing and tons of laughter.  Being in such a different atmosphere and with such an interesting crowd was a totally surreal experience.  I grabed by camera and took pictures for most of the night. I think it was the most enjoyable picture-taking time I have ever had.  Here are some shots:
