I first noticed Karin on the streets of Volgograd thanks to his bright orange hat. Then I noticed his “New York 1986” shirt. He said he was from the former Soviet Republic of Tajikistan, an unstable country bordering Afghanistan. Like many if his countrymen, he had come to Russia to work due to low salaries, few jobs at home. He said he was working on a construction site for the summer in Volgograd (former Stalingrad).
