The sun came out in Lviv this afternoon!
Another not-so-great shot of Lviv in Ukraine this afternoon.
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.
This is a shot taken at a museum in Lviv, a city in Ukraine. Lviv is much more European-influenced than Eastern-influenced. It’s a gorgeous place to visit. *
Just a random picture from one of our trips to Lviv last year (we were there more than once). Ukrainian Catholics in places like Crimea are being persecuted, and Catholic churches in Western Ukraine have been attacked and burnt down. Putin is all about the Orthodox Church, you see, and seems to think the Catholics are behind Ukraine’s ‘gay agenda’ (idiot!) and patriotism (like that’s a crime!).
I’m officially Ukrainian Catholic, though I don’t follow the religion, and while Ukrainian Catholics are much more lenient – Ukrainian priests can marry, for example – they’re not out there championing gay rights!!
