Random Pictures of Yuzhno

I know I am behind updating this site, as my Mom keeps reminding me.  I am going to try and be better, I promise!  I am posting a few pictures of Yuzhno that have been taken over the past few months.  Just a little of what I see on a regular basis...

A shot of the mountain in the background

People selling stuff on the street

Most people walk everywhere or take the bus

Apartment building

Shipping containers with windows?  I hope this isn't someone's house...

Slaviansky's Complex has one of the better grocery stores

Another apartment building

Azbuka Detstva (Childhood ABC) is Yuzhno's version of a Toy's R Us

Russian Orthodox Church

Gornii Vozdukh, the ski mountain

Another church; I thought this one had an interesting look with the stained glass windows

Properly done, a modified shipping container can be very livable. There are a couple of shipping container houses in the Heights area, and they are commonly used to build housing for drilling sites. In Yuzhno, I would hope they put some insulation in them, or you could be a little cold.

It's been cool here in Doha. The other day it was down to 13 or so. Sweaters were in order.

I don't know about Russia, but here in Korea those shipping containers are often used as construction offices, or as cheap housing in really poor areas.
