In April 2015, there was a tour of Bucharest going on outside the bloc in which I lived. I took a look outside. Right as I was looking at the group, the man leading the group said “and here, you can see a communist bloc.”
At that point, everybody turned and looked at the building, and more specifically at me, as I was in the window. Right then, I snapped a picture of the group with my tablet.
Here it is.
I did not know I lived in a communist landmark. It’s interesting how marketing works and how you can turn a regular building into a touristic sight.
I usually don’t enjoy photographs that have a before story (and mostly and after one too), because I think the photograph itself should tell the story, but I think in this case, it does work.
