While hitchhiking from St. Petersburg to Moscow, one of our drivers left us in this tiny Russian village along the highway: five small huts with bored women, each supported by a hot, cooking samovar on front. We couldn't stand to not get some tea before continuing.
The food was delicious and after a short break Maria and I continued our way to Moscow. We still had around 500 kilometres ahead of us this afternoon. Just minutes later a small truck stopped, with a reticent driver going all the way to our final destination. Sometimes it is fortunate to make short (tea) breaks, to let that one perfect ride catch you!
