On Post-Soviet Decay in Ukraine

A friend’s observation:

“An awful lot of Ukraine is like mexico. Its tragic. All of this horrible post soviet decaying brick, concrete, and sheet metal.

No people were ever so poor with such nobility and grace. I love them.

Especially the old guys with bug russian hats. .

The middle of america is hollowing out. But the relative decline is being filled with the third world.

We do not decay as gracefully.”
