The tile stove

It is cool in Ukraine, I’d even say it’s cold. It’s foggy and only 13°C (55°F) at noon, the tile stove has become a great friend. For some reason next to the still cold central heating radiators there is a gas powered tile stove in the largest room. It isn’t much different from the one we had in Budapest, and I really love it. With the less than optimal insulation of the windows and door we had a cold wind in the apartment. Now, thanks to the tile stove, it’s nice and warm, and I’m sitting in my room with the laptop and a cup of coffee, listening to Black, and feeling oh very homesick for my boys.

  1. We had tile stoves in every room, back in my childhood home in Romania…Oh, sweet memories…Before gas we had wood tile stoves, what a wonderful smell…
    I am still sick as hell, but thinking about you, Hevel. Hope everything is OK.

    I am sitting here freezing, wishing I had any source of heat….but a tile stove sounds fantastic.

    I LOVED that music. Very evocative visual, too.
