Warsaw Krakow L’viv Kyiv
For reasons that will become clear, I have the opportunity to hit the road – or rather rails – in Eastern Europe. Never been. Never dreamed of it, but here it comes.
We – that would be Carol, son Brian and I – need to be in Kyiv, Ukraine on October 10th. That’s 10.10.10 for you numerology folks. Brian and I were thinking about the trip a few weeks back, standing by my big National Geographic Atlas in our front hall. Brian has been. He traced a route from Kiev to L’viv, the first capitol of Ukraine, on to Krakow, Poland and described the cities as being beautiful and steeping with history. Good enough for me… I know nothing.
As the time neared and dates were considered, we reversed the trip:
Fly to Warsaw, which is remarkably easy from San Francisco (remarkably long, as well). Take the train to Krakow, stay a few days; train to L’viv for a couple days and on to Kyiv. Sounds like a plan.
Needless to say, I’ll be eating and drinking and writing and taking pictures, so sometime in late October something good – or at least interesting – will appear on eats. In the meantime, I’m limited to rather pedestrian electronic and communication equipment and will be out of touch, as they say. Although son Brian tells me I can email from Carol’s iPad where we find wifi.
