Kyiv in photos, week two

Just a fun post with a few more photos to show what life outside of work has been like.

Wild irises
Buildings try to be trees

Wild chamomile

Do I look like a hipster??
Wild flowers
Katya is never leaving this field
Oksana soaks up the sun
Post river tee-shirts are a bad idea
The Dnipro beach
I will steal this car
Downtown near sunset
In the metro, escalator time
Independence Square at twilight
Tetiana on the roof in Pecherski
Oksana dances on the roof
Thinking about making paper planes
Thats my little buidling in the middle
Pavlo sends off the paper plane
The bes idea ever, roaming espresso trucks
Our porch
Our elephant
Katya's cat, Lili
Some creative graffitti
Sunset coming back over the bridge

Most of the photos are from our weekend day trip. Some friends and I rented bicycles for 80 UAH a day (about $10) and went to an island in the middle of the Dnipro. It took about 30 minutes to get there from the Podil neighborhood and once there, it was all nature. Beautiful, wild flower filled fields, clean river beaches and no city life anywhere- except a few tall buildings that appeared over the horizon from time to time.

I have also included some snapshots of things I see around the city and some photos from my new neighborhood- on a roof next door and a view of our plant covered balcony (thanks to my green thumbed roommates.)
