Kurkov, I've been following your thread since you started it. In 1989 I spent a month in Odessa for the Black Sea Cup sailboat race. We were "free" to wander the city. We spent a lot of time at the "dollar bars" in the Black Sea and Red Sea hotels. I found everything interesting. The food was good, most of the people we were able to talk to were nice. I don't want to stomp on your thread, but my pics are here (https://www.flickr.com …/albums/7215767​1439444105 (external link)) if you are interested. We were in Odessa and a little bit in Kiev, and a few from the hotel window in Belgrade. Again, great pics of Russia.

Odessa and Kiev are Ukraine my friend not Russia. Not really the same although given your pics are from 1989 they were much closer together then :)

But this thread does have some great pics of Eastern Europe which I love

Ha, yeah I know they are Ukraine. Back then being out of college only a few years, it was all Russia to us.

LOL! Guess it was still the Soviet Union anyway back then before Ukraine gained independence.

Great place. I love shooting here :)

I like seeing the images from Russia...BUT...WHAT THE HELL ARE WE LOOKING AT?

It would be nice to know what the back story is. Why is the old man and woman looking at a sheet metal wall? What is the church, where is the brick path???

I would like to know more. PLEASE.
