Kamchatka, Russia | Where the Salmon Rule, National Geographic Magazine: Visiting Shut-Ins After the Wedding | Kamchatka, Russia

After the official wedding ceremony at the town hall, the new couple walks the town with the wedding party to visit everyone in town who could not get out of their houses to come to the three-day party.  They drink a shot of vodka with each shut-in and have a little food and then go to the next home and visit someone else too elderly or infirm to participate in the event.
