Ukraine is one of the most beautiful places I have been, from the modern city of Kiev to the 300-year-old city of Lugansk. Lugansk is now in the middle of the war in Ukraine.
When I was there it was exactly what you would think to be the old USSR city we all see in the movies. The Eastern part of Ukraine was my first look at this new country. I first was in Donetsk in 2011 although at first! It was a strange place for me. It soon became a place I truly enjoyed I met some very nice people there.
I think from my opinion the East of Ukraine has the most beautiful girls.
I saw these black haired girls with green or deep blue eyes I was mesmerized by these women. Then I met a girl Anya with jet black hair and grey eyes with just a little violet in them. I have never seen eyes like this before. Day after day I saw jet black haired women, but at this time I had no idea how to date one. Until I met Inna beautiful green eyes, she spoke English quite well.We went to a river Siversky Donetsk a beautiful place. Trees all along the banks the water moved so slow, we found an outside cafe right in the middle of the forest. As we were coming back to the city we passed church after church beautiful with gold tops. I do like this city very much! It is an old city that years ago had many factories. I do pray that soon the conflict will be over and the people of the East will live in peace whether it be part of Ukraine or part of Russia.
I have been to many cities in Ukraine but Donetsk was the first, it was a somewhat modern city, now I understand it is in ruin.
Donetsk is the city which I will never forget, I arrived just after sunset and had no Idea what was coming next. I was so nervous in that taxi ride not know anything about Ukraine all I knew was it was part of the USSR years ago. The airport was so far from the city, so as we drove through the forest, I saw fog through the trees.Now my thoughts were getting way out of control I started thinking werewolves or vampires. Maybe the cab driver would leave me in the forest, take my luggage and leave me.
