Peizazhna alley in Kiev. An interesting place with a unique fairy atmosphere. We went there today with a friend. Here are just a few pics I took in haste (quite a few other people walking, posing, taking their pictures)
Can you imagine that our local authorities are constantly trying to demolish this place and erect a building there instead? There are courts, appeals, protests taking place. Goes on and on. Limitless human greed.
I don't think its institutions, more like greedy people at power who either own or get bribes from corporations. I actually don't mind more stores, I can just ignore them, malls aren't nuclear power plants. Its only when they want to ruin unique picturesque places like this to open another shopping center that I get mad.
