  1. Russia is a great nation. People who don’t want to work and make money live like that. lived their all my life and I am not saying it is a paradise but it is definitely not that bad. Why don’t you go to Washington DC and see how people live their (SE, SW….) It is even worth.

    • I wont disagree with you about america being the richest country back in days in such a short period of time, inventing an incredible financial system and people used to like that country for being something new.

      Today your government is really messing things up and people in other places hate america cuz when you come and see how your government’s external policy is making things worse for other nations. Corporate greed is something that is destroying the future of complete nations but thats a whole different and broad topic.

      I live under a hybrid government system.. It combines both socialism and capitalism and i like it that way because if you are poor the government supports you and if you got some money you can do something with it like invest in stocks or own a business..
      I personally like this ‘hybrid’ system as i dont believe that everything should’nt be completely privatized and made profitable from such as health and education or at least have the option to chose..

      No system is perfect, they all have a darkside and theres always a loop hole or a stench of corruption but you cannot tell me to live an american way of life outside america cuz every part of the world is different and has different issues and problems..

  2. I like the picture of the cute blonde girl. I’m always curious to see how lots of people live and I don’t care if they’re rich or poor. It’s interesting. Thanks for post.

  3. I’m available to cheer up the sad lovely in pic 9. I’m bring her wine and music. But, pray tell, whose jeans are those?

  4. Take a look at how Detroit is doing in the US. A former automotive and manufacturing powerhouse, it’s now a shadow of its former self. We aren’t that unalike anymore.


  5. It’s always interesting to see how some people live. In this case it makes my own life seem very comfortable in comparison. At other times (eg. people in Lamborghinis and on big yachts) I feel a twinge of envy.

    English-Russia is endlessly fascinating thanks to photosets like this one. Please keep up the good work!

  6. What is worse, going to hell or living poor (and going to Heaven)There is nothing wrong with this, but it can be just a little bit better.
