Cucumbers and Fighter Jets

You never know what you are going to find when you wander Russian roads. A few years ago, I was in Moscow and looking to fill an empty day with an interesting outing to somewhere outside the capital. On the recommendation of our history editor, Tamara Eidelman, I set out for Kolomna and Zaraysk.

It was a bright, sunny day and the drive was slow-going and uneventful. Then, about 125 kilometers southeast of Moscow, we drove through the quiet town (population 32,000) of Lukhovitsy.
