- TOUR 2010 : LVIV -



  "Lviv, here we are at the next stop..."
The first day in this city was wonderful. As I say in this film, I arrived at seven in the morning in the train station area, and this is where I spent most of my time outside. It means until eight o'clock in the evening; time to meet with Iryna.
A great day, spent with the interesting people of the train stations (noticeably similar in all countries) drinking coffee and eating roasted chicken.
Then... I spent three days editing Krakow's movie on the balcony of my esteemed host.
So without taking pictures of the city, how do you talk about it? I have no idea, so I didn't. But I was however able to show the kind of person with whom you can have a good time on night trains.
I'm not going to tell everything, but I just add for clarification that during the whole evening I understood absolutely nothing of what my new friends were saying... whatever, their meeting was one of the most pleasant of this trip, and a solid proof of Ukrainian amenity.
If by any chance - by some miracle - they come across this site, I would like to wish them health and wealth as they did for me!
As for you, it's the same! Hugs, and see you in Kiev!
Ho, and thank you also to the gentleman we see sleeping near the end, he spontaneously gave me a banana for breakfast.

  2. Héhé, that's exactly what I felt during the time I made the movie... "Where the fuck is Lviv there" ?!!! I think you got the meaning of all my work! Not to be a guide book, but a private filter:) I'm Happy that people (at least you, héhé) understand it!
    And God,I love so much that Ukrainian melancholic soul!
