The following are pictures I took during my first overseas trip in all of my fifty-nine years that was inspired and helped by my Nina and long time attorney and friend Bruce. There is not much more to say and I will, with the exception of captions, let the photos speak for themselves.

the Center of Kiev

where I stayed the longest and most cozy

Different fixtures in this new place

street pole adorned

door of cafe I took video from!

lost on Subway “metro” I kept coming back to THIS outside station.

I was going for the statue!

We just walked from there!

still “lost in space” on the Metro…

Kiev’s tallest skyscraper!

Beach on Dnepr river


Kiev bike girl!

from my favorite of three apartments there

A main brew label!

trash dumpsters filled fast! This is early morning

cobblestone streets we walked

Great Cafe` views!

Never saw a clothes drying rack like THIS! Nice.

Mickey D’s is everywhere…

walking tour of “Golden Gate” area

a view from a temporary flat.

Boxer for President!

Man walks dog everywhere!

Inna! Seal coming SOON!

Presidents Hotel

Iron window stop on a windy day

Construction cranes loom on the hill

They are just curious!

what the “Metro” subway cars look like…

“Peace!” Ciao.


The Floor is always open for your comments!

My mind and body,
Weary, tired and quiet.
Carrying heavy luggage,
Unexpected mental loads;
Money issues stalk me back.
Going to the USA reluctantly,
Happily to see my Mum!
Much too earthy and surprised,
I have a better plan perspective.
I have offers to return to Kiev in-hand!
Yet the whole mission is like a class,
In school if you did not attend enough for a grade;
You would receive an “incomplete”.
I held my part of the bargain!
Better late than never!
Goddammit!! I try to understand it.
Maybe another time;
That is the way it goes if your girlfriend is secretly Human,
Not the Superwoman you saw her as.
Susceptible to what “others” in her family or friends circle;
“Say” about the decisions you make with what is yours.
She should not have TOLD them,
About a decision happily made towards our
Destiny with a happy man.
That’s the way it goes…
At least with ME anyway.
I love you just the same.

Passengers break into applause upon another smooth landing.

Comments are cool with me.
