African Pygmy Hedgehogs

I’d like to tell you about my hobby. We are not engaged only in politics in Russia. We are not all beggars and gangsters. We are interested not only in a war. For example, my wife and I are interested in hedgehogs. To tell you the truth, we both are crazy about these little prickly creatures. They live with us at home in an apartment. We keep and breed African pygmy hedgehogs. Moreover, being enthusiastic photographers my wife and I take our pet’s pictures. Now I’d like to present the recent series of our African pygmy hedgehogs photos. It’s a different view of the dark Russian life, isn’t it?

Dear readers!

This article presents my personal view. I don’t pretend I tell you any kind of absolute objectivity.

I love Russia and I love Russians. My personal slogan is “I love! I know! I tell!”

I’m very sorry for my bad English. First of all I try to tell you about lovely Russia, about the Russian mind and way of thinking. I don’t pretend I speak correct and fluent English.

I can help you in any projects related to Russia in the fields of deep non-standard tourism and independent journalism. Also you can buy some my texts and photos. Contact me by e-mail: editor@diff-view.com if you want. Welcome to real Russia!

Yours sincerely
Igor Shiryaev
