|Church of the Holy Martyr Alexander, проспект Косиора. I guess any day that ends with a view like this can't be too bad!|
My friend Tanya invited me out to her side of town this afternoon. She lives near Proletarska, the final metro stop on one end of the red line. Tanya had a lot of warnings about her part of town... but I quite liked it, starting with the metro stop itself.
|This is my new fav metro stop. It looks really serious and imposing, made of marble in rather somber shades. And it's got the ☭ everywhere, so cool! Obviously looking at USSR stuff never ever gets old.|
|Green Park (or possibly Green Grove? I think it's Ukrainian)|
|A nice day to be in the woods|
Since this park includes several amusement park rides, we paid 10 grivna ($1.25) to get a bird's eye view from an old Ferris wheel. The rest of the rides appeared to be for kids, although there was a tempting trampoline area.
|Lots of homey brick buildings here|
All in all, a pretty wonderful afternoon. I hope that you, my dear readers, are having a fantastic weekend of your own!
