Kyiv – Day 4/21 – Summer in Winter

“I would never go to Eastern Europe in winter.”

“You are going to freeze your butt off.”

“How stupid of you!”

These were some of the comments I received when I announced my plan to spend the winter in Ukraine.

And here I am, today, on 19 December, enjoying the sun at the Botanical Garden in Kyiv (outside, not in one of the greenhouses).

I am reading a wonderful road novel of young Polish guys exploring Ukraine, written by Ziemowit Szczerek. Thanks to Thomas Kuban for sending me this book! It’s so suitable for this trip, although I definitely won’t be drinking as much as the protagonists. Unfortunately, it’s not yet available in English, but if you read German or Polish, I highly recommend “Mordor kommt und frisst uns auf” or “Przyjdzie Mordor i nas zje, czyli tajna historia Słowian”.


About Andreas Moser

Travelling the world and writing about it. I have degrees in law and philosophy, but I'd much rather be a writer, a spy or a hobo.

    We live in Oaxaca, Mexico, from October to April, and we know a lady from Ukraine who spends her winters here!
