Ukraine today…

A French-style palace in Lviv, Ukraine. It is a gallery these days.

On the Road…

The road between Canberra and Queanbeyan. I always end up with so many pictures from along this road, because the sky is HUGE.

In Ukraine

The old wall in Lviv, Ukraine. It has been very cold the last couple of days – yesterday it even snowed a little bit!

Lviv

All my decent pictures are on my camera and I can’t transfer them across to my tablet, but here’s a shot from Lviv in Ukraine this afternoon.

Despite everyone’s idea that the whole country is some war-ravaged wasteland, it is business as usual in the west. There are a lot of soldiers around – on leave from the war – but otherwise, this is the bustling, cafe-filled city it has always been.

Just a Note

I am leaving Canberra today and will be flying to Europe tomorrow. I will be in Ukraine for about a month and then Italy for about a month. I have posts scheduled for that time, but I’m not sure how often I’m going to be able to get onto a computer and manage my sites!

This is Kyiv (which you probably know by the Russian name, Kiev), Ukraine’s capital city. It is gorgeous, but nobody knows anything about it:
