The last days in Kiev, more exploring on the agenda, good food and a club later. A visit to the Yanukovych residence is also on the agenda and of course eat some delicious Ukrainian borsch. Today the temperature is over 30 degrees celsius in the shadows, what a nice day for weekend fun in Kiev.
Staying in a suite at the Hotel Ukraine is a perfect way to start the day here.
Wow, the hotel serves melted water for breakfast, that is a first, or is it? Just add some frozen water to cool it down.
Local bus in the city, low cost if you can figure out where it is going.
From the local supermarket, I was not sure about which I would like to prepare for dinner here.
