  1. Leningrad is not bad. I have distant family there. It has a very vibrant cultural vibe to it. Even to this day some of the best Russian singers and artists come out of this former capital of Russian Empire. The only problem with it is that it’s so damn cold there in the winter. Very low temperatures combined with bone freezing winds. Frozen piles of snow sometimes remain until May. Chicago is a heaven in comparison.

  2. I can’t help but look at the middle-aged men in these pictures and think that only 20 years earlier they were all on the front, protecting their country.
