A "fast" Lada -- photo taken outside of Kiev, Ukraine

A photo contribution form Ed Garten, currently on travel in the Ukraine.  Taken outside of Kiev.

As Jesus once said, "the poor will always be with you."  And so unlike downtown Kiev, where there is a proliferation of Bentleys, Mercedes, Porsches, etc.,  in the outskirts of the city are the poor with their Ladas. And even if they don't go fast, this Lada has meaning as a symbol of freedom, although it takes a lot for the average person to dig their way out of the depths of society. At least one can dream of going fast and free.
