Huge statue of Lenin found in Anarctica.

Quote
Scientists trekking across a little visited part of Antarctica have discovered a bizarre relic of the Soviet Union is dominating the South Pole of Inaccessibility.

In the middle of no-where – literally the point on Antarctica furthest from the sea – an imposing bust of revolutionary Bolshevik Vladimir Lenin peers out onto the polar emptiness.

 AJ thanks for that Lenin!  I was in Nikolaev in 05 but saw Vladdy at night so no photo could be taken.

AJ, nice photo.

I noticed the Ukrainian Cyrillic ленiн instead of the Russian ленин.

The second tallest Lenin, surprise is not in India, rather in Russia. I am amazed at how Indians adored and glorified Lenin, but for the record the 2nd tallest Lenin is in the northwest Moscow suburb of Dubna. Then along the banks of the river Lenin watches over the comings and goings of the locks that gives Moscow the right to be called the port city of 5 seas.

Just to give you some perspective, a normal person standing on the ground would be at about the height of those first two stone levels. Those trees are tall, also giving you additional perspective. See the #2 photos for tree level.)

At one time there was an identical pedestal with a statue of Stalin alongside Mr. Lenin. That was removed during a period of "De-Stalinazation" after his death.

I assume the first one from this area and posting a little late but - from Nikolayevsk-on-Amur tiphat
If you get a minute check out Bruce's TR - Its not quite finished, however its still a pretty good read IMHO.

If I win the lottery I'll finish it this week if not I'll probably complete it when I retire!!! Until then I hope you enjoy the story so far!

In St. Petersburg.  He is looking over the Neva River toward the Hermitage and the city proper.  The Finland rail station is behind him.

I am fairly certain that Lenin spent time in Germany, Berlin and München. He also was in England, London for a congress before the revolutions.

Do not forget that Lenin came a privileged background. He spent time in Siberia as punishment for revolutionary activities. He married there and spent time fishing and hunting, a far cry from the gulags of a generation or two latter.

Waving Don, Assen has never been a very successful town/city. It is though famous for motorcycle races!

Please tell me there is no RUA member from Assen.

I've been told the wood has to "wait" before being turned into a REAL GOOD guitar for 20, sometimes 30 years; thus "pre-fire" Fenders are valued much more than "post-fire" ones...  ::)

Jimi Hendrix didn't have to wait that long :king:
