This is not really a proper blog post. This is just a compilation of pictures that we took while walking about on the streets. These just didn’t ‘fit‘ anywhere else and I wanted to show you some of the interesting things we saw while in Ukraine. As we walked around the Markets and streets we saw things that we would never see at home.
Even though to us this may be considered unsanitary, the walnuts I bought on the street were the freshest and tastiest, I’ve ever eaten.
There were ladies selling home-made pickles in big jars at the next vendor. Rob wanted just to buy a single pickle. They tried to sell him the big jar but we had no way to store it or carry it. It caused them a great deal of laughter when he offered 5 hryvnia for a single pickle. This was way more than it was worth. That was about 25 cents in our money. He said it was delicious!
Some of the more interesting things we saw in the markets!
‘There’s something about a soldier’. He was a little ‘cold’ and didn’t respond to my affection!
Inside the Supermarket. The sugar was loose in these big gray bins and there were sparrows flying around inside the store!
I loved this old house. It would have looked so good restored as it overlooked the river. In the second picture see anything strange? The electrical post is just ‘floating’ above the ground. The picture doesn’t do it justice as you can’t see how it’s just hanging there.
The hoar-frost that painted the pine needles with diamonds!

Even in the Ukraine, Canada is never far from our minds.
