MARIA AND ANASTASIA: LITTLE PAIR’S HAMMOCK

 “… [We] had tea on the balcony then swung in the hammock. It is hanging between two trees behind the path by the balcony. The trees there are very strong….”   “Had tea with Shvybz and the same swung in a hammock…”

“…Maria and I swing in the hammocks sometimes and she almost always turns me over…”  “…Maria and I… keep swinging in the hammock. ” “…We cut off old branches with dull knives and with our hands, and then swung in hammocks. Now there are two hammocks, as Marie has one too and they are hanging in a kilivatorny column…”

One thought on “MARIA AND ANASTASIA: LITTLE PAIR’S HAMMOCK

  1. I really love the last romanovs. I think they didn’t deserve this tragicall final.
    Marie is my favourite grand duchess,she looked like so sensitive and kind. The little pair is really funny because Maria and Anastasia were so different between them. I really enjoy when I read about their anecdotes.
    Congrats for you web!
