  1. Pic # 43……A high-rise favela….crowded, awkward living conditions. In spite of that, people could still have a happy life and lots of good memories.

  2. Possibly in the USSR’s golden years (50s & 60s) it might have been nice for those in cities, but poverty and starvation were realities for a majority of the population outside of the cities. Like many in Russia, there are those here who romanticize that time period, when in reality, only a very few enjoyed relative prosperity. The reality was backbreaking labor for minimal pay for the majority of both populations. The major difference was that we (the US) had the opportunity to climb the ladder to success and we enjoyed many more freedoms.
