18 Life in an Ordinary Ukrainian Village

Life in an Ordinary Ukrainian Village

Posted on August 19, 2011 by team

An ordinary Ukrainian village. 40 houses, 120 permanent residents most part of whom are old men. Many drink, heavily. Living conditions are far from perfect… Sounds awful? Don’t worry. These people love their life as much as you do and would probably never agree to leave their native village if they had a chance.

All roads near the Odessa highway are more or less fine. But 50 kilometers further they become really terrible, some kind of mixture of asphalt and gravel.

Local departments of propaganda. “The road you walk along will lead you to me. God”.

This year fields are planted very tightly because of the great harvest of all the crops. By the way, local combines belong to the state harvesting company and that’s why are equipped with GPS devices.

Tasty pastries will be made out of these bio- poppy seeds.

Everything in this village is bio. Bio-vegetables.

      Looks like the rural parts of the southeast US

        Yes but the majority of the poor in the US South still have running water, AC, a car, indoor plumbing, and cable TV. Perhaps parts of Appalachia. Deffinately on par with Mexico though

        This is true, I know people who aren’t that old, who had to use an outhouse growing up and had no hot water unless they boiled it. But they had a happy childhood without it.

    So when the poppy plant dries out and done making heroin sap it then has poppy seeds to eat that are good for consumption, right? What a bitter sweet plant.

    hmmm… Is there more yet to come in future post?

    Also, that handfull of poppy pods if made into a tea would get one high as frac.
