    As for the construction job only,one could go or not,first of all,it was one’s choice;second-it was during summer vacations;third-students went to build units to earn money;
    there were students who went there because of romantic appeal,fourth;probably there were some other personal reasons,I don’t know.But building constructions and working as a train conductors were not obligatory.

    cool! It`s russian history! Photos must be interesting for old rassians!?

    medinstitut picture is quite disturbing – can’t imagine that taking place in a medical college here, so disrespectful to the deceased. I saw similar gross mistreatment of bodies in a medinstitut in southern Russia in the later 1980s.

    here as in america?
    they dissect corpses in american medschool too

  9. Gerry says:

    Yes, all world medical schools dissect the dead, we should not single out the (former) Soviet Union. It’s just that I’ve never seen public photos of such procedures in the West (from an adult of 50+ years). The social culture is somewhat different perhaps, though this is just something sent into English/Russian. So that’s not all so important eh? Nor should it be caused to represent an entire culture.
    I don’t think we have an arguement here. Gerry (5 times in Russian (Rossiya)

    I think that “Loco” is in fact volleyball, not soccer team – behind boys there hangs the net and their kit is more likely volleyball – short socks, numbers on front left side were not customary on soccer jersey and stripe above number wears typically captain of volleyball team.

    Really good mate. Also Ive bookmarked this blog. This blog is very useful for me.

  12. Discount says:

    All in the past. Adio URSS.

  13. biomedtalk says:

    My opinion is a bit another how it is possible to talk to the author, for example on an e-mail?

  14. Ed Verville says:

    Great webpage, exactly where did you obtain the design template?

  15. SaShKo says:

    Very remarkable topic

  16. This kit IS wonderful, but next to nothing except the patches jogs my memory on the celebration, it must have been retro azteca styling

  17. construction jobs these days are on demand because the construction business is booming again~,.
