If you asked me “how was your day today?”, I could tell you that
- it is still winter,
- it is terribly cold,
- a snowstorm has been ravaging all day,
- I live in a Soviet-era apartment block made out of pre-fabricated concrete slabs (called “Krushchovka”)
- which was built in the 1960s
- and which most people found ugly back then,
- let alone now after half a century of decay.
- When I look out of my window, I see more of the same Krushchovkas
- and it is getting dark.
You would probably feel sorry and you would imagine a very ugly and sad neighbourhood.
Yet I, with my strange taste, find beauty in this, especially at this time of day when the night takes over. Let me show you why:
I sometimes feel like living on a film set. By the way, these Krushchovkas are really warm and cozy on the inside.
