Russian "Old Believers" On The Kenai Peninsula

It surprised me when we ran across people speaking Russian to each other in the grocery store, the women wearing what I call fundemental garb--long dresses with scarves.  The fabric was sparkly and gossamer and they wore very shiney, dripping earrings.

I didn't even get a clue when I saw the sign for Kalifornsky Beach Road!  I'm always very happy to "discover" such cultural enclaves.

wow! thank you for Sharing! I'm not Orthodox yet, but I attend a Greek Orthodox. But I have always been drawn to a simpler life in dress especially. I was blessed to see this!
