    These are great. Remind me of photos my parents took when they first got married… not of Leningrad, though.

    Does anyone know if this was taken from another website? There’s no link, besides a google map. I’m curious if there’s more info, I wonder where the tourists are from.

    Still looks pretty much the same now… except for a LOT more private vehicles and shops.

    A free world without advertising constantly calling for attention. Completely fraudulent as it always was. I have seen such countries and it is unbelievable free quiet to simply live in such environments… just the daily neccesities like cafes, restaurants, barbers but no brands.
