## Valaam Island, Summer In that distant 2011 I got a job as a cook in a restaurant for a pleasure ship I worked very hard, I woke up at 4 nights to prepare breakfast and lunch for 150 guests of our ship, It was cool after work to sit on the stern and admire the views of Ladoga lake. ![3491882_large.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmeeZ7RDVkvfj5tbfHQf2zsiRYvgrJSz8mUh7k9wEV9oaV/3491882_large.jpg) When we approached the island of Valaam, all the employees were allowed to walk around the island as tourists, which we did )) ![100_8367.JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmSp5DnpXXL3mQMd3nf7ELmg34W6rGGS6n54mqGqcFkR85/100_8367.JPG) ![100_8369.JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmSUCQGPcDHDHrrGaAvb3uXmGSu1dPcoGQZaCR9PQ31vrS/100_8369.JPG) At that time the island underwent a major reconstruction of the church In spite of his sporty appearance, your humble servant decided to take pictures for the history ;) ![100_8384.JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmYsW8RuhHb9Jen6qodUhJqXvkWHZvdFt4h4aKwCNV6K5X/100_8384.JPG) ![100_8381.JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmPVDt9ZY6yAxpaBLZXYJvipegwqsdMo9UBdJQ7BEKRD1q/100_8381.JPG) By the way, the president of Russia Vladimir Putin also visited this island, but not much on another ship ![83411899.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmYh9MjE6LJFmHffCfFtgdMszgQbWC1urYt6tnYhBjFjJy/83411899.jpg) The photo left a little from that time so I took a couple of photos from here http://galatv.am/hy/inozlmn/181394/ http://www.swietegoducha.cerkiew.pl/2016/03/30/pokaz-filmu-monaster-na-wyspie-waalam/ ### [Subscribe](https://steemit.com/@rublevoy) to me and write in the comments, if you liked please upvote )
