Are you Ukranian? I’m just curious how many friends from the Ukraine we have online.
According to one knowledgable Forumosan, Ukranians do not like it when Ukrainia is refered to as “the” Ukraine.
I think the guy and girl who play music and sing at Salt & Bread are Ukrainian…
My last name ends in “ski” which I heard is Ukranian…and the "sky"s are Polish?
Ukrainian women are the most beautiful on earth if you ask me. My first love was Ukranian and a few times since then I’ve seen amazingly gorgeous women who and I’ve asked if they were Ukranian and they were. I gotta visit there one day.
My name is Mark Selikoff. I am a third generation American, half Ukranian and half German.
I’m not Ukranian, but I lived there for a month in a remote village on top of a mountain studying the gypsies in 1998. A few classmates and I lived in a house with Pan Vasyl – a 60 year old farmer peasant who rode a tank with the Red Army (although he hated/hates the Soviet Union/Russia and officers in general)…this stocky vet made some “mean” homemade vodka.
I mainly remember the cheap drinking. Delicious local fruit wines were like 20 cents a litre. I remember smoking 100s of packets of unfiltered “Cossack” ciggies and getting pissed with a bunch of gangsters in a mafioso bar in a bank vault in Uzhgorod.
Our professor also booked us into a hotel that also served as the village’s cat house, but geez – the hookers would have beat most high school football (gridiron) teams…They were big boned, homely, and had half of their teeth missing. I just accepted the room.
Drinking shitloads of vodka for breakfast, studying the Romany for most of the day, and then driving into Uzhgorod for night activities.
An interesting trip. I would have liked to venture to the eastern part of the country (Odessa etc).
