    ukrainian wisdom pearls...

    ok, so i need to leave and re-register in april so i thought i'd get a train to the Ukraine and make a week out of it. gonna head to kiev and wondered is anyone had anything in particular they could recommend i see or do. also a good youth hostel, club, bar recommendation would also be great.

    Let's see:
    Родина мать - "Statue of liberty" of Ukraine
    Лавра - millenium old monastery (yes a 1000 years old)
    Пирожное - outdoor museum where you can see how ancient ukrainians lived (ancient = 100 years ago )

    That's all I had time for in my two day visit

    For great food at an unbelievable low price go to one of the Ukrainian buffet resturants in the center. The only problem is trying to decide how to fit all of the yummy dishes on your tray!

    It's located in Volgograd (former Stalingrad) and it's not even close to Ukraine.
    Лавра - millenium old monastery (yes a 1000 years old)
    You have probably mistaken it with St. Sophia Cathedral that is really more than 1000 years old - Kievo-Pechorskaya Lavra is much younger, but still ancient.
    Пирожное - outdoor museum where you can see how ancient ukrainians lived (ancient = 100 years ago )
    I have no idea what are you talking about, sorry.
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    Well, it was founded in 1051, so it is very close

    Да уж, а я даже и не знал, что и в Киеве подобная бандура есть. И насчёт Киево-Печёрской Лавры был уверен, что она основана где-то в XII-XIII веках.

    "С чий очи сънувам, чий е този лик обречен?
    Смъртен глас ми се причува и отеква с вик далечен
    Как да зърна да погледна, чуждий образ да прегърна,
    на лицето ми студено грях в надежда да превърна.."

    A Ukraine visa run is a good time to replenish your sala supply. They make the BEST sala!

    What is "sala?"
    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.
