Friday Face-Lublin, Poland

The day that I spent walking around the town of Lublin in Poland there was some type of mountain bike race taking place in the old town section of the town. These are 2 of the competitors warming up on the cobblestone streets of Lublin.

Friday Face-Kiev, Ukraine

I was in Kiev for the Ukrainian Independence Day. I saw a lot of the women that were dressed similar to this photo. The women wore a Ukrainian Wreath on their heads and both men and women wore shirts with different embroidery similar to this as well.



I visited the area where the Museum to the WWII was and saw children playing are various machines of war. I found it a bit surreal to see this in a country that currently is in a conflict but I am the nut who is there as a tourist.

Lviv a Town of Weddings

While walking around Lviv on a Saturday afternoon doing some sight seeing I saw at least a dozen wedding parties. Honestly I lost count of how many I saw. The only church I went into today had one wedding in progress and 2 waiting at the back of the church. I sat on a park bench for awhile and at one time I could see 5 different wedding parties having photos taken from my spot on the bench. It was fun watching them in the different poses, jumping, spinning, hugging trees, you name it and they seemed to be trying to capture it in a photo.

Here are a few of the pictures that I took today.

Friday's Face-Bakuriani, Georgia

Bakuriani is a small town at the base of a ski area. I took the train from Borjomi to Bakuriani as a day trip just to enjoy the view on the mountains from the train. At the train station in Bakuriani there were these carriages to taxi people to the center of the small town. I just made the five minute walk but took this picture of one of the drivers as he past me by.
