    Ah, back in the day when Communism was fun! Or at least different. Back before the show trials, the purges, the Gulag. Back before it became a spirit-crushing oppression run by incompetent boot lickers.

    Eu sou do Brasil, curto muito o seu site. Todo os dias eu venho aqui e vejo as novidade que voce apresenta. Gostaria de deixar uma critica construtiva: A quebra de paginas que foi inserida no final dos topicos nao ficou boa. Mas mesmo assim seu site esta de parabens.

    the most beautiful picture is the one of Kirgizian women riding a horse – poor beauty, can you see the mountains behind? and this joy….
    the rest of the photos show how poor was the standard of living comparing to nowadays…at least in Europe…
