Leaving Ukraine

By the Buses

When my family visits Kharkov, we take a bus there from the airport near Kiev. Of course, this means I have to travel back to Kiev by bus as well! Today is the day that I will have to leave Kharkov and travel back home to Wisconsin. It will take me over 24 hours! Here I am in the bus yard, waiting for the Avtolux coach to take me to Kiev. Ready to journey across eastern Ukraine?

Inky in Lublin, crossing the country by bus

Here is a tower in Lublin, one of the places where the bus stops. Isn't the sky blue? It's so refreshing to be under the blue sky after days of cloudy grey sky.

Picking out a drink at a kiosk

At the rest stop, you can buy some juice! Yum. Can you tell which flavors of juice are available at this shop, even if you can't read Russian?

When does our bus to Kiev leave?

Here is the sign that tells you what time the buses to Kiev leave! I think it looks vintage. :)

Bunny bread. The woman in the bunny bread kiosk loved Inky.

This is a bakery stall. Can you tell what shape the breads are in? They're bunnies! The lady who was selling them told me that I am very cute.

Off to Kiev!

Then it was time to go to our next stop. So long, Lublin!

Good bye Piryatin!

This stop is Piryatin. The red sign above the minibus says "Avtostantsiya," or "Bus Station." I didn't walk around much at this stop.

Riding on the bus. No seatbelts in Ukraine.

Finally, I got back on the bus. Once we got the airport, things were too busy to take more photos, so this is my last photo from my Ukraine trip this time. Goodbye Ukraine! I hope I see you again soon!
