By the first snow. Walking through the labyrinth

This is a close-up photo of "The Labyrinth" mural that was created in Kyiv in 2016 as part of the Art United Us art project.

Sometimes, when I go out on bussiness, I like to be a tourist in my town. Or a "Maze Walker". 🙂 I don't take familiar routes but intentionally walk along unknown small streets, arches, yards. Walk leisurely and look up and around.

Last week I went to pick up medicine from the pharmacy. This happens as follows. We have a website to search for drugs in all pharmacies of the city. On this site, you can make an order (and get a discount), which is valid for 48 hours. In this way, the medicine is guaranteed to be waiting for you at the declared price.

I often take the tram along this street. Therefore, I was very surprised that I did not see this mural earlier. In general, almost all the murals in this area are painted on the northern wall. That is, a wall that is always in the shade in autumn and winter.

I walked up and down between new and old building hope to run into new findings. It's funny how I can see something interesting as soon as I turn off "business mode".

This is not a masterpiece of art just fun installation to attract visitors to the small coffee shop.

I found this abandoned house ob a paralel street. It stand behind the fence. Maybe, waiting for restoration. Hopefully. But also possible that they are going to demolish the old house to build a new one in the "modern bad taste" style.

Sometimes old things have to make space for something new. But with such a beautiful old building, I always hope that someone will be found to restore it. Something like this building is no longer built today, because it would be much too expensive.

I have a few blankets!!
We got electricity in the morning, but still no water, heating and Internet (only mobile). I feel like a student again ☺ Back then, we had no hot water for year or so, and had to carry cold water in buckets from the first floor to the third. I developed unique skills that came in handy now 😂😂😂

I love old architecture of Kyiv very much. I mean 18th, 19th - beginning of the 20th century. It doesn't look like in other cities. And it always upset me when it is replaced with modern ugly building. My accent is in ugly.

You look good! :)

It was wonderful to just slow down a bit with you here and enjoy the detail for a while. Yes. You are right. It's amazing what you can see when you aren't in "business mode".

Thank you. I needed this 🌺

Loved the street art! There's plenty of that in the city where I'm living and I still didn't get the time to explore all of them :)
