Congrats on being featured, Irina! It does triggers many emotions… especially because it’s the same wherever you are
thank you, Nikolay! agree, the ruins look the same everywhere. but here in UK there are pretty hard to find for the lack of them :) this delapidated school house is very famous and has been photographed to death :)
