Lenin

By paulcr
The man himself. I never got to see his body while I was there. They take it away every couple of years for a few touch ups. Lenin was embalmed completely agianst his wishes. He wanted a simple funeral. This year he was taken away for some work and a new suit for his 125th (I think) birthday. However due to the recession and cutbacks, you guessed it, no new birthday suit this year. Poor guy..

yes, Tommie. Himself and Stalin were obliging with photos in front of the Kremlin lol. I took this from a distance though. The text at the bottom is taken from a shot of his (the real Lenin's) mauseleum, V2. Paul
