Katya Timakova had some hesitation taking photos in her small hometown in the Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia. But while we had our fun, I could hardly detect an ounce of fear.

After, we visited the family garden where Katya helps her babushka grow fresh fruits and vegetables. Living in the nature-rich countryside of Mother Russia has its perks.
