<<<>>> Moscow is, without a doubt, Russia’s most expansive and expensive city. Living and commercial space is at a premium and people obviously try to get the most out of it. I’ve always loved how little stores, which are much like convenience stores in the US, fill their windows to the brim with the best they have to offer!
This little corner stores sprouted up in the early Nineties, as soon as the economic reforms after the fall of the Soviet Union allowed people to become entrepreneurs and store owners. They sell produce (fruit, vegetables, meat and dairy, mostly) and most often simple household items. They definitely “put up a good fight” against supermarkets. Some choose the “dirt cheap” road and try to offer the lowest possible price, while others, like the one pictured above, endeavour to entice customers by displaying row upon row of their finest offerings. Sometimes a single window and adjacent door hide a much larger store than one would expect from the outside, but more often than not they are just a “two-room affair”.
Last year, among great debate, a number of such stores and kiosks, which owned its success (or its mere survival) to the fact that they were right outside busy metro stations, was torn down. The “legal reason” for the demolition was that, in fact, a good 99% of them had been built hurriedly and illegally during a time of “far west economy” under Yeltsin‘s presidency and with blatant disregard for all safety norms and regulation. On the other hand most, if not almost all of them, had already “changed hands” in the past 20-25 years and the current owner had bought the stores at market price unaware of any underlying problem (and with legal contracts). Another reason was that (other stores’ owners) felt that their incredibly convenient location amounted to unfair competition and that being in such close proximity to the metro station was an unbeatable advantage. It is worth noting, on the matter, that the Moscow metro transports every year about 2.5 billion passengers.

Сидим мы, значит, на фонтане и доедаем gelato. Смотрим по сторонам, обсуждаем местных и тут поднимаем взгляд на окно - а через щелку виднеется итальянская бабушка - сидит себе на кроватке и радуется ничегонеделанию 😁
There is a family living on this island for over 10 years. They travel a distance of more than 20 minutes on boat coming back and forth between their home and the land. They bring food, drink and necessities from the land to their home and sell back to travelers. The island though has no wifi, no signal, no cable nor electricity. Thus, no cellphone nor laptop, television is necessary. A very wild, pure, simple type of life that gives us a goosebump just thinking about it. Though, their smiles are brighter than most of ours...brighter than mine.
You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you'll escape one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.' ☺
