Into the east: Welcome to the Ukraine
Because we decided not to make too long car driving every day – we still had one stop for night in Poland, in the middle of the way Cracow-Lviv. Visiting Zuza’s parents in Trzebownisko, near Rzeszow was like coming back home, under care of somebody calm and familiar. Drinking, like at home from Nescafe cups (every good Polish family has some of them;), having some kids-talks, watching 12th episode of Lost before going to bed.
We’ve got eggs and pickles for the way (together with jam and bread from Radom makes already good breakfast), repacked car once again (practice makes perfect) and headed to the border.
This exalted step of passing from EU into the east we made in village Korczowa. Luckily faster than others (because Hanna is “malenkaja rebionka”), we had to fulfill forms few times (because when the customs official woman saw our destination (“–>Lviv-Ukraine-Romania-Moldova-Ukraine-Russia-Georgia-Azerbaijan-Armenia-Turkey-Bulgaria…) she looked on me like on fool and advised to write “Lviv, hotel Lviv”!!). So I did. Stamp after stamp, we finally ended up on first petrol station after the border.
From the beginning on Tom is very impressed by Ukrainian roads (heh, maybe finally he will stop joking about Polish ones). And I’m happy that when we arrived to Lviv I gave him the steering wheel..
Ah, one more good news! We’ve got an email from Hipp company (you know, all those kids products) that they will be happy to send us package of goods. The question is what address should we give them?
