Local election day in Russia and a simple thought…

As I walked 10,000 steps this morning. I found numerous election sites setting up. So I snapped an image of one as I set on a park bench…

Sveta has gone to her mothers home across Moscow, for she is registered at her first flat she owned and still owns and in Russia you must be registered to vote. Sveta’s moms flat and Sveta’s flat are near each other. Actually technically, Sveta’s mom lives in Sveta’s flat and another family member lives in Sveta’s mom’s flat. I just call it ring around the flats… 😉

It makes sense and that way you get one vote and have to be an actual Russian to vote. Unlike elections in the Western Empire…

Otherwise I could vote in Russia if, like the western world I came from and that is just not right. I am still an American citizen, not a Russian citizen….then again many Mexican citizens vote in America and they are not Americans…

Really would not be fair for this American to make decisions on who runs Russia and such…

While talking about flats in Russia…

I know many Russians and I know from experience that many Russians and I mean many Russians have more than one flat. These flats are paid for and owned lock stock and barrel. It is why so many Russians have so much money to spend on other things than just trying to keep a home over their heads…

Could you imaging owning two or three homes and never dream of selling them?

If the children are raised correctly, they will inherit many times, up to three or four homes, as the older generations pass away…

Yes it makes sense and it makes for security for the future…
