As promised, here are just a sampling of the 3,000+ photos from our life-changing week in Slobodskoy. These particular pictures are through the eyes and lens of Koss Modenov, a renaissance man who has a magical way with the English and Russian languages…and yet can tell a strong story with no words at all. Thanks, Koss, for helping bring Slobodskoy to Chapel Hill, NC and Brosville, VA and Bruce, FL.

Great photos! Thanks Koss!
Thank you Koss, and to all who continue to love and support the children, teachers, caregivers and Galina in Slobodskoy. I love seeing all the smiling faces, I can not wait to see more and hear all your stories. Safe travels friends.
Great photos Koss-another talent to add to your long list! Can’t wait for the return of the team to hear all your adventures!
These photos brought back so many memories from our trip in the Spring of 2011. I can’t believe how big the kids are getting!!!
