Last trip to the Krak so I decided to go into a Russian Security "no-go" zone for all foreigners. One of these zones in the decrepit Army Conscript Barracks. I took a few shots and adjusted the images as I felt was descriptive of the dire situation these kids must have been in.....
For an idea of what life was like for these kids look up or Dedovshchina --? or go here Dedovshchina

Who needs Chernobyl? I was locating photos taken from the plane window going from Orlando to Philly. One was on the Delaware coast, so I checked the nearby AFB where I'd lived during high school. Sure enough, just like Patrick, the housing from back then had been completely replaced. There was a moving truck, of course.
