Comments

We didn't talk much about Kiev but I talked today with two ukrainian kids, one of them with a HH background that would put Ludo to shame, and they seemed to think Kiev was a better idea. It being more multicultural than the two others. They were also pretty surprised that Lviv would be elected "most depressive place in Europe". They told me it was a really cute place.


I would suggest any easy and nice to camp at beach location or similar nice nature places - no cities !! Nat-Cho (CS)

If our aim is to attract public attention, then I believe we need a city. Sitarane


Sorry for the explication of the ukrainian border, I wanted to put them here but I do a mistake and lost the copy/paste, can you tell about the difficulty to cross again ? Thx Misha22h46, 15 August 2008 (CEST)
