Russia: Land of Oz

As if life in Russia wasn't already random enough, following a minor hurricane that swept through the Moscow hinterlands last Friday, one of my colleagues ended up with an upside-down dacha in his backgarden (photo left).

As a testimony to Russian architecture & sturdy building traditions, the structure landed completely intact, windows and all, after flying over his fence in the middle of the night.

Reportedly, there were no wicked witches (or even babushki) trapped underneath, however, no amount of clicking of ruby-encrusted high heels (of which there are plenty in Russia) would return the dacha to its previous position.
