Hipster wall

This old monastery (later converted into a mental asylum by the Soviets) wall on the outskirts of the village is a big hit with all kinds of hipsters from the capital. They come over with models and fancy cameras for long photoshoots involving (sometimes heavy and really weird) make up, multiple outfit changes and cliche pretentious poses in front of the wall.

They always find our canteen afterwards and always get super excited about "how wonderful everything is and how everything is locally grown and home cooked and hand-made by the locals and organic and artisan, et, etc". We always feed them. Sometimes we make them work for food. They are generally crap at chopping wood (although they love to take pictures of themselves with an axe for Instagram) so we mostly make them sweep. They are good at that if a bit slow.
