Remnants of the “glorious” Soviet past still linger in places like Almaty, Kazakhstan.  I took these photos yesterday thinking that at the rate the government plans to change the face of this former capital, I had better capture the hammer and sickle symbol and Red Army star while they still exist.  The playground equipment is in the courtyard area of our apartment complex, again old Soviet style.  Very Spartan like yet functional, so very Soviet.
