When you are in a city the size of Kyiv (approximately 5,000,000 people) you find that as you get to know your way around and figure out where to look you'll find that there is simply an amazing array of things to see and do. It would be impossible to find the time to go to all the events that I find interesting.
I did go with some friend to: The Beatles Remembered. I like the Beatles songs but I'm not a 'huge' fan. At the same point I loved this show as every song was song by a different Ukrainian artist. My friends could tell you the names of the artists. As for me well no, I have no idea. There was a young lady who might not have been a teenager yet who had one of the most incredible voices I have ever heard! I understand she won at an even younger age a talent contest on a Ukrainian TV show.
Those of you who know me know that I enjoy my food. There is a never ending supply of food stands, cafe's and restaurants here. I have no idea how many there are!! What I can tell you is that they mostly lean to the European side of the food world. French, Italian,and Sushi is everywhere you look. I have heard of one Korean. One or two Cuban. There is a Brazilian and three Chinese and a few that lean towards the American style of food. Of course there is Ukrainian food and some absolutely great food from the country of Georgia . Make sure if you like wine that you try the Georgian wines as you'll find none better. Recently however Poco-loco opened up within a 20 minute walk from my flat. Real Mexican food (Tex-Mex) with spices in the food. Yes I said spices, as in a little heat. I have found that when other restaurants list or warn me personally that the food is spicy, they don't really know spice as I know it. I like some heat to add to the flavor but not enough to make me think I'm going to die!!!
The two photos above are just two of the different acts that performed at the Beatles Remembered concert.
Some of the food from Poco-loco. Two of the musicians with part of our group. Finally Jorge, Ludmila, Diana and myself at the restaurant. I urge you all, don't sit at home, go out see the world, meet new people and try new things. Life is short so go and enjoy the journey. From Ukraine, Al
