Selling a Town

Now, that was a new thing that I heard!!

You must have heard about people selling homes, cars, companies - but selling a town is a different story altogether!!

The European country of Latvia has managed to sell a town - which goes by the name Skundra!!

It was a Russian Military town during the Cold War era - when Russia was still USSR!!

It has been left unoccupied since the Russian's withdrew from Latvia in 1994 - and has since been called a "Ghost Town"!!

Now this is one place whose progress will be monitored closely in the coming years - given the publicity it has derived over its sale!!
