Battleship Potemkin

Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Rasputin, Tchaikovsky, Lenin, Trotsky, Eisenstein, Tarkovsky, Yuri Gagarin, Laika, Anna Kournikova, Misha the Bear, Dimitri Radchenko, Smirnoff… and I can go on with the list of great Russians for the history. Unfortunately when we think of the country first thing that comes to our mind is vodka, unless you have been there before, in which case is the second. So much I wanted to go to my beloved Russia but I couldn’t. Instead, from Almaty I flew to Ukraine.

From Kiev airport, I went straight to Odessa where I spent a few days. After almost one year outside Europe, it felt very strange being able to enjoy the silence, cleanliness and tidy traffic in a city.

The stairs. Respect
Potemkin stairs. Respect

Beautiful city, good atmosphere and good cheap beer. Many pretty buildings, a big market, nice bars… I like Odessa.
