The apartment blocks of Sirgala, Estonia

Visited 16.8.2011 by jonahi. Sirgala is a small, poor village next to Viivikonna (previous post). Oil shale was mined here also, until it dried up. There were abandoned flats in almost every Sirgala's apartment block house, and a few completely empty buildings, too. People were just living in their shabby homes right next to the flats with broken windows, total mess and stolen radiators. I think this particular house has first been just apartments, then some kind of election place, or it has something to do with the local military training grounds that we missed, again because of the arriving darkness. But why all the books, magazines and other paper stuff in there?
