It is one of the most common sound images of the season – the red and yellow leaves that fell down only a day (or even hours) ago being wiped off the pavements, how could I resist pressing the rec button? There are times when you hear this almost everywhere you go. In the days of yore street cleaners used to have brooms made of twigs tied together – a few keepers handle the same kind of rigs even now. Sergievoposadians are well aware of the fact that may puzzle the other oontz.ru readers – so let me tell you that Ferma (which is “farm” in Russian) is the name of the eastern suburb of Sergiyev Posad.
