Arrow Wind of Change

The Wall...Berlin...Germany 1989 - 25 + Years ago ..
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change
An August summer night
Soldiers passing by
Listening to the wind of change..

The world is closing in
Did you ever think
That we could be so close, like brothers
The future's in the air
I can feel it everywhere
Blowing with the wind of change..

Rowing in Gorky Central Park with Ferris wheel in the background 1982..

Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure (Центральный парк культуры и отдыха (ЦПКиО) имени Горького , tr. Tsentralny park kultury i otdykha imeni Gorkogo) is an amusement park in Moscow, named after Maxim Gorky..During the post-Soviet era Gorky Park used to host an amusement park with fun fairs, various amusement rides, a Ferris wheel and one of the mock-ups (test units) from the Buran space shuttle program.. During the winter the footpaths flood over and freeze, which allows ice-skating around the park..Over the years the rides became decrepit, and the park territory was swamped with cheap attractions and cafes..Over the years the rides became decrepit, and the park territory was swamped with cheap attractions and cafes. In 2011 the Gorky Park underwent a major reconstruction.. All amusement rides but one, a two deck carousel, have been removed in order to transform the place into an eco-friendly recreational zone.. In March, the city appointed Sergei Kapkov director of the 120-hectare, or 300-acre, Gorky Park..He canceled the entrance fee and cleared the park of outdated carnival rides and junk food stalls, while bringing back the traditional sport activities: aerobics, yoga and salsa dancing taught by educated instructors, along with creating new spaces, such as a p├ętanque cafe, beach volleyball courts and an open-air cinema theatre.. With free Wi-fi, contemporary public art projects, design fairs and a new cafe policy, Gorky Park soon became one of the most popular places in Moscow.. A 15,000 square meter ice rink, with separate zones for children, hockey, dancing, and general skating, was officially opened in December 2011... many people in our society disappear..They fall into a gulf..What sort of gulf?.The guf between what is said and what is done..Girls like screwing foreigners, don't they?..
