Re: Hidden Deep in a Russian Forest.

It might have fallen into disuse due to location. Russia has areas, like the US, where economic disaster settled in to stay and much of the population moved away. Think of the situation in Detroit, for example. That old house in the photographs looks like it may still have an occupant at least some of the time. Squatter maybe, or perhaps somebody uses a less decayed wing of the house as a dacha. Great photos, btw.

Amazing House. At first I thought it was a doll house. So intricate in detail. "Someones finest work" I would say.

Honestly, if you don't mind learning a new langauge and have skills that can be used to earn a living or some fixed income of some sort, Russia is really great. The langauge is not so hard to learn some basics and houses are very cheap there.
They have lost over 700,000 in population year after year. So they have many abandoned houses and even I saw whole apartment buildings with only a few people living in them.
Food is cheap, rides for taxi were only thirty rubles for anyplace I went. Clothes weren't so nice unless you were buying very expensive stuff. Shoes sucked unless they came from Italy. The local markets were great fun. Little booths selling what ever they seemed to specialize in. Refridgerators were very interesting. Totally unlike our American models. Many had glass doors like you see for produce in a store. I am thinking of a return trip in the coming year. This time I have a great camera.
