Shashlik is the Russian/Georgian version of shish kebab. People here always talk about going to shashliks and I have been invited to several but last weekend I finally got to go with some people from the office.

We almost fit into this van. Some of the pictures here I got from Andrey who is making the V sign. He works in the office next to mine along with Denis who is wearing sunglasses inside.

We came to this place in the country side. There is a car, a donkey and a sort of cabin where you can enjoy the shashlik. There were a few cabins like this beside eachother and we had rented one of them but the people who ran the place were very clever to rent our place to some other people also. That way they make more money.

Instead we made the shashlik freestyle, between the trees. It was actually quite windy there but unlike in Denmark the wind here is not cold so it was fine.

The girls made some 'sandwiches'. A sandwich here is actually just a piece of bread with one or two things on top.

The guys prepared the shashlik. You can even do that lying down.

Shashlik! It get's some extra taste from beer and ashes. There was pork and chicken and the chicken actually was the best (sorry Menfolk).

There's the donkey again. I guess Andrey figured it would also like some vodka.

The place was near a small lake and a kind of playground. That tall thing is a toy.

You just have to run around and then suddenly you are hanging in the air. We did that for a long time.

In the end we were hanging by the water.

In the van, on the way home.
