The good, the bad, and the ugly

There is some construction going on right now on the rail tracks in Keila, so they have some replacement buses that take us to Tallinn.  While waiting for the bus I noticed that there is a really crazy looking building right in the center of Keila.  It has a little bit of everything in it.  First the good.  There is a really modern glass part on the right side of the building, very modern and nice.  This highlights the half remont idea in Estonia.  This takes it to a new extreme.  I think it has to do with a business owning only part of a building.  Now the bad.  There is a run down ugly small food store on the bottom left of the building.  I don't know why it is there, a bigger nicer food store is right next door (not in the picture).  And the ugly, the crappy grey brick mixed with the red brick really is ugly.  In the top attic, which is also grey for some reason,I saw some pigeons flying around, totally empty and abandoned.  And there you have it.  The good, the bad, and the ugly.
