I visited Kiev once about 10 years ago – actually, probably closer to 12 now. Colorful is not the word I would have used to describe it (unless you mean of course, in the adventure sense – driving the wrong way down a five lane highway in an armored vehicle to get to the airport on time is colorful in its own way I supposed), Granted we went in January, so that of course has something to do with it, but I definitely came away from the trip thinking the city intriguing.
But when I saw this video – comprised of more than 25,000 tilt-shift stills (taken over the course of two days no less!), colorful is almost the only word that comes to mind – in addition to it still being intriguing. Maybe it’s time to give Kiev a second look…any diplo-spouses out there in Kiev?
