The New Door on our Russian Flat…

128sI am not always sure what makes Sveta and I do certain things, but I feel that a change in the atmosphere is what drove us to install a better door on our flat. That atmospheric change which was along the lines of “flat number 5,” (we are number two by the way) showing signs that are inconsistent with proper social behavior. I have always known that this young lady (loosely said,) who lives in number 5 is not a good influence on the world at large…

Sveta finally saw the writing on the wall and we installed a new door on this past Sunday. For we decided that any loosely said young lady who would steal from her own family, will not hesitate to gather her following of zombies and try to break into other flats…

The new door is very secure and very heavy steel. We decided to get this door because we travel a lot and now everyone after many years knows this fact. Then the fact that someone was let in to steal some objects in the hallway in front of our flats. That helped the decision…

I guess that is the atmospheric changes that happened…

We decided to install it before our upcoming Estonia trip and now we will feel safer, but I will feel more pissed, because we had to install something to stop something that should not happen…

Actually we love the old door and in fact it has not been removed. We are leaving it up. I did a lot of work on that door and it was the original door that came with the flat. But as it was as cheap as possible of a door that can be bought and Sveta could even kick it in. It was time to secure our home better. For we have been here years now and have acquired lots of memories and stuff. That stuff needs to stay in our flat…

(I realized that we were some of the first ones to move into this huge building…)

The inner door as I call it now is part of the family and it has the correct look for the interior of our flat. So it looks like it will stay…

Oh by the way! Happiness was evident yesterday as the door went up. The men who installed the door looked like Moldavian and when they found out that I was from America, one of them, had that follow me around puppy dog look. He was so proud to be putting a door up for this American…

It has been awhile since I have seen that look. It use to be common when I first came to Russia, but with times changing and America pissing off people left and right, I do not get to see that reaction very many times anymore….

They did a good job by the way…

P.S. We will deal with the number 5 issue, for the neighbors all all getting pissed. No you do not call the cops in Russia for literally anything short of death and even then you may not call them…

That is the way it is and that is why I love Russia…
