“Zhiguli” or part of our history...

There are different ways how a person looks at everything…as they say “glass can feel/seem/look half full or half empty…”

Nowadays it is very popular to complain…we often complain about everything starting from weather and continuing with anything…as if better we live more we complain…

As most of you know Soviet times were all about “Zhiguli”s or “Lada cars”…People were happy to have/to be allowed to have a car…nowadays there are no restrictions…cars everywhere…after being happy for awhile that there are no restrictions and there are new opportunities everyone started to complain that cars are too big, streets are too narrow, traffic jams are too irritating…etc etc…

Well…Zhiguli on below pictures belongs to the neighbor of my in-laws…looks like he is not getting depressed that his car is not the fastest and the biggest on this street...but loves the car he has got…his glass must be half full…hopefully…:)

Why “Zhiguli” on this blog? Because it is a part of our history…we might not always like our history but it is what it is with all the good and the bad…hopefully today we (can) create a better history for tomorrow…each of us…

Be well :)

First of all, I would like to say thank you for bringing Azerbaijan to us, Daily Photo Enthusiasts. It is my first Time here and I really am loving it here!

I really like your post about Zhiguli. It brought more learning for me as to your culture. I adore the study of History because I personally believe that with history, we can create a better tomorrow by learning all the wrongs and faults from the past. Just like what you've said :D

Also, I was quite struck about your say aboiut complaining. I realize that much I complain about the weather her in the past month because we reached 40 degrees Celsius and I think that's the hottest I felt all my 20 years of existence. I realized that instead of complaining. I should even feel Thankful because we'll never know how hotter it can or might be in the coming years due to Global Warming.

I've learned so much from your Post! Thank you so much! I hope I can see you sometime at Cavite Daily Photo! Greetings from the Philippines!
