This weekend in Kyiv was one of the best in a lonnnng time, weather-wise. No rain. Dry roads and sidewalks. Well, mostly dry. Crisp fall air but no overwhelming breeze. So perfect for strolling.

The variety of colors of leaves are more beautiful this year than ever. The yellows are bright, bright, bright.  Image

It was so nice to find that some of the open-air cafes have remained open…many rolled up their sidewalks when we had a cold spell following a month of rain. It certainly appeared that there would be no fall.


I love that the cafes offer nice warm blankets to wrap up in while waiting for lunch.Image

Thankful for our house guest Joyce who decided that she wanted to treat us to lunch out.

And thankful that she would split a delightful chocolatey taste treat: Fruit Shashlik. Oh, yeah. Kiwi, banana, grape, crepe. Mmmm.
