This monument is the largest head of Vladimir Il'ich in the world. It is said that at the top of it there is a small ridge not to let the pigeons sit. Perhaps it is one of the few cities that has accepted its Soviet past simply by turning the page, without denial or false nostalgia. Two boys on the street were staring my camera asking me (in Russian) if I was American. Most of the population are Buryats: almond eyes, high cheekbones, dark skin. I like this. - 2 hours ago
