Ukraine – A Beautiful Country

It was once called “the breadbasket of Europe”. In many ways it looks like the prairies in Canada, which is perhaps why so many Ukrainians who came to Canada settled there.

It’s had a challenging history to say the least.  Fought over by various powers and now finally establishing itself as an independent country.

I’d like to show some of the interesting aspects that I’ve discovered during my trips to Ukraine, plus things that I discover on the internet while I continue my efforts to learn to speak Russian. 🙂

Here’s a video of a fashion show in a bar which is totally typical. Most of the guests don’t pay much attention to the show and in many bars and nightclubs there’s a stripshow with the female guests paying more attention to it than the guys.  Certainly not what you see in the West.

For some fantastic photos of Crimea, go to Flikr and search Crimea.

And here’s some amazingly talented kids.  The quality of such things as dancing and art is really impressive.

More later…
