Got out of the city today, and went up to a popular working monastery. (We saw a miraculous icon! We don't know what it did, but it was miraculous!) After visiting the church and whatnot, we went for a walk on the nature trail through the neighboring hills and woods. It was gorgeous.
We saw a lot of these red and white bracelets tied to the trees and bushes. I think they must be for prayers, but I'll ask around and keep you updated!
