another chick in kiev

A friend of mine came to visit yesterday (yea!) and is leaving tomorrow (boo!) but I’ve been having a blast showing her this wacky city. We walked around a bit yesterday and found ourselves having a beer in Maidon and watching - I shit you not - real live breakdancers….


and guys doing tricks on bikes:


and..AND…little punk kids!


So cute! I had no idea punk was alive here in Kiev. We even had a chat with a lovely young fellow named Konstentine who came over when he heard us speaking English and discussed music with us.

Then I had to show my guest some traditional Ukrainian things that I’ve come to love.


Vodka and red caviar. Yum. Then, of course, I had to show her Decadence House, one of my favorite places here - and no, there will be no photos from that part of the evening shared here…

Then today we had a bit of a spa morning, quick stop in to work and then the Andreskey tour down the hill into Podil so she could buy gifties for folks. I found more of the penis graffiti that I so enjoy…this one all dressed up….


…and we too Chauncey with us, and he got his first ride on the funicular.


Now it’s shower time then off for more exciting Kiev nightlife…

    I love your blog! My six year old and I are moving to Kiev in 10 days. Thanks for giving me a heads up. Are you American? I’d love to hear from you before we leave. Don’t worry, I’m not a psycho… just excited and freaked the hell out! LOL
