This is a short report on my missing a month of internet.
The first sunny days end of March prompted me and my mysterious companion ;) to explore far away villages near Lviv in search of the thousand year old caves (settlements of my Slavic ancestors). Wasn't easy finding the spot, but the expanse and sun and silence of a small village was quite refreshing already
also, their cemetery looked interesting, stretching up on a hill. "Run, Irina, run! :)"
When 30 minutes after going back and forth the bumpy road of hardly inhabited countryside the ascend to the cavey type thing was located, the first challenge was to cross this bridge
Completed successfully. Then climbing up the hill to find this:
We did it. Silly happy face.
Then looking around, and especially down
Realizing that the descend is going to be more difficult than climbing up.
Anyhow, no necks got broken or anckles twisted. Was a fun day out, away from civillization. Once again confirming that nature is only blissful for a short while, and it's nice to be able to return to our modern houses, showers, kitchens, internet, ACs, cafes and tons of services one phone call and 30 minutes away.
Back in Kyiv:
In a contemporary art park:
Views from a botanic garden:
Found a hobbit hole of sorts:
Ok, I need to work on my act here, but still:
There's no wi-fi in the park, I'm using my tablet for taking pictures, most of the photos you see here are made with it. Have a better camera but who wants to carry an extra gadget around?
Some artist at work:
Like the color scheme here:
Pessimist tree tells it like it is:
Me high up on a hill:
Lovers on a hill:
And, of course, there was lots of hanging out in the pubs and restaurants.
Go home, you're drunk!
With the amazing water-pipe:
But wait, I forgot to give you a tour of the famous Lychakiv Cemetery in Lviv! Would you come on a date with me there? It's very peaceful!
to be continued in my next post.
Good, I'm relatively healthy and happy, yes))
What's with the floods in Texas? Are you on the high ground, literally speaking?
Me birthing a kid? Only if trapped in a cellar unable to make an abortion. I could at some point adopt one, that's a possibility. A remote one, but still.
Ah, good for you. Sucks for somebody else, of course, that they have to live in the flood zones. Such is life.
This new person in your life must be a good connection, that's great.
But really, it can be possible to find someone that makes a tolerable partner.
Certainly, as you say, with a bit of luck) Granted, we ourselves qualify as 'tolerable partners'
thanks, I'm ok, and you?
Not much inspiration to update my blog but I've been posting some stuff on Facebook, usually some funny pics and such. Most of the time I;m working on my websites, some kind of a maniacal inspiratio to be productive and competitive lately
