Family. Because… Nothing says communism like a luxury hotel. Russia and the Hotel Ukraina.

On my first trip to Russia, my mother and I in front of the Hotel Ukraina. One of Stalin’s Seven Sisters buildings. And a closer shot of the Hotel Ukraina. These are old slides. The quality of them is so beautiful, colour and detail.

You don’t have to understand the overall situation[if that is even possible/if it even exists], all you have to do is stick to your belief system.

Family.

Well I hate to tell you but they didn’t die. You would prefer that they were dead. Or tidily and sentimentally packaged? I think a lot of people would be happy to know some survived.
