Charity Bazaar Attracts Growing Numbers
Text and photographs by John Bonar

Crowds turned out in August for a day of fun and culture at the Indonesian Charity Bazaar. This is fast becoming a summer tradition in Moscow and well in excess of 1,000 people turned up at the spacious Embassy compound on Novokuznetskaya ulitsa and eagerly bought Indonesian handicrafts and other products including clothes by Tatyana Sudaryanto, the Russian designer who has sought inspiration from Bali. The main prize of the grand raffle was return tickets for two from Moscow to Jakarta by Emirates Airlines.

The growing popularity and impact of Indonesia in Moscow life was evidenced by the substantial increase in turnout, up from some 750 people last year.
