Partizansk, Russia

Another student in Vladivostok prepared this slideshow about a mining town three hours away. She spent part of her childhood there and has fond memories, despite the fact that the town is now almost desolate.

Her reporting was beautiful and very poignant(spelling?) The slides certainly added to her story. I think she learned a lot from your classes, xoxo G

this happens here in the states, except it usually is a company moves out of town and it was the only source of income. the clothing industry went from new england to the south and then overseas.
