Memorial Park, Kiev Ukraine

The Memorial Park of the Great Patriotic War

Memorial WWII (7)

Over the next couple of months, I will be re-visiting some of the familiar sites in Kiev, Ukraine..  My time here is almost done.

I have one more major trip planned and then my effort gets diverted into getting the paperwork in place, signed and approved for the next assignment… Hopefully Moscow in July..

Near the center of Kiev, Ukraine, sitting on Reytarska Street, near metro station Zoloti Vorota and the Golden Gates, is a little statue of a hedgehog; carved from wood and adorned with 500 screws as spines..

If you are a fan of the Russian movie, Hedgehog in the Fog, you would recognize the star of that animated film. It is cute, quirky and well worth a visit

Kyiv – Shot of the Day

House of the Weeping Widow 2

The House of the Weeping Widow.. Lyteranska Street at the intersection with Bankova.. The drains from the peak of the roof run through the eyes and when it rains, the face cries.. A well known building in Kyiv, it is owned by the government and occasionally used as housing for visiting foreign dignitaries..
