Post a Photo of Your Lenin !
« on: April 15, 2009, 09:43:43 PM »

  Alright to all those who have gone to the FSU, have seen the Lenin statues standing proudly over the people. As I mentioned earlier, I try to collect photo's of Vladdy Lenin and I have a few scattered in my PC. I thought it would be slightly interesting if the guys posted their Lenin photo's.

 I was told once that all the Lenin's face west, I couldn't tell because I have a poor sense of direction. :drunk:

 Now Let's see those Lenin's !

 Ok  I'll start it off !

                                                Lenin in Odessa

 In 2006 they tore down this Lenin.




                           
                                                Lenin in Dnepropetrovsk

 This one stands on Karl Marx overlooking a newly renovated shopping area.






                                                 Lenin in Kharkov

 The largest Lenin I have seen, and it overlooks Freedom Square, the largest square in the FSU.

Lenin in Penza in the summer.  I'll post the winter pic from home later. :) 
Look, we're gonna spend half the night driving around the Hills looking for this one party and you're going to say it sucks and we're all gonna leave and then we're gonna go look for this other party. But all the parties and all the bars, they all suck. <-Same goes for forums!

What a fun thread! Here's Dyadya Volodya ("Uncle Volodya," Volodya being the diminutive for Vladimir), as some of us here in Smallville irreverently refer to him. This was taken in June 2009 in Smallville's Lenin Square.

Life is so short we must move very slowly.
