Comme un Isme

Ain't no other party like a commie party!

I posted some photos which I took in Ulyanovsk (ex-Simbirsk). I stayed there for almost a month.

Of course, there are many communist symbols in the city named after Vladimir Lenin (his real surname was Ulyanov). My view of the 1917 coup is not a big secret, but I know how we can use these symbols in a positive way: the city where Lenin was born can become a ‘commie Mecca‘ for leftist tourists, historians, people  interested in the history of Lenin’s family, his upbringing, etc.
