Our stairwell. I'm glad they warned us not to judge our apartment by the hallways.

I think I was in Irkutsk when a Buryat guy told me that common areas of Soviet apartments are always a mess. I asked him why and why he didn't buy some paint or clean up the hallway. His answer: "We spent so many years being forced to give to the collective that all we care about now is the private. I wouldn't lift even my small toe for the collective."
