meet-the-russian-who-walks-around-the-city-during-the-coronavirus-pandemic-dressed-as-a-plague-doctor

A man in the costume of a plague doctor walks along the Kaliningrad streets, a Russian exclave on the Baltic Sea. It is sandwiched between Poland and Lithuania along the Baltic coast. The people look at the tall, thin figure in black with surprise. “Klops” found out who is hiding under a mask with a beak, and why he does it.


Vasily Lunev - 33, is married and works in his own workshop for sewing leather products. He wears a medieval doctor's costume to demonstrate his skills and surprise people.


“I am interested in history, I participate in reconstruction festivals. The“ plague doctor ”character attracts me for many reasons. Most of all, I like that you can hide your face behind a mask with a beak,” Lunev explained.

Vasily’s costume consists of a leather apron, a shirt with a collar, a spacious hood, a mask and gloves.

“Doctors carried cones, bottles, amulets that rang when walking. They also had a knife and scissors. They didn’t have a medical education, they hired them to clean up the bodies of the dead, take tests, and forgive sins,” the man says enthusiastically.


On the street, people have mixed reactions of my outfit. Sometimes passers-by shy away, sometimes laugh. Vasily complains that Kaliningrad is unfriendly to new things which are not the norm.


"Our people are more conservative than in St. Petersburg or Moscow. There, people notice me and my costume is expressing a healthy interest. However, when I walk on the streets of Kaliningrad, very often people advise, "to go to a psychologist or a priest," Vasily shares.


Lunev emphasizes that his outfit has nothing to do with the coronavirus epidemic. He began to wear and wear it a couple of years ago.


“Yes, this is the first chemical protection suit in history, but it won’t save you from COVID-19. A mask with a beak unreliably isolates. According to current realities, a gas mask is better,” he informs.

can-i-babysit-your-dog-please-a-boy-sends-a-letter-to-his-neighbor-and-melts-the-heart-of-millions-of-people

A boy named Troy has written a letter to his neighbour about Arthur, the latter's golden retriever. He only studies in the fourth-grade.

 

In the letter, the little boy offered to help to babysit the dog and take him out for a walk after the ‘virus’ is gone.

 

“Hello neighbours, My name is Troy. I’m in 4th grade and I’m just wondering if maybe after this virus you need a dog sitter and if so I can take your dogs on walks and more,” wrote the little boy.

 

The dog even has an Instagram account which shared the letter along with a caption that read, “I made friends with a small hooman today. He’s like basically me-sized. I bet I can get him to give me more treats than my hoomans”.

 

This adorable gesture has inspired thousands of comments online. A user wrote, “That dogs face is like, can I please keep it? I’ll take good care of it and walk it everyday” another said, “This is a great daily dose of wholesomeness”.
