Yesterday I posted on Facebook these words, “Thankful to live near one of the most beautiful boulevards in Ukraine!” Tonight proved it even more!
I fed my puppy Buddy and we went for a walk. I don’t have a set path that we take and most of the time I let it flow. I usually avoid Puskhina Blvd in the evenings as there are too many people out walking and too many distractions for a puppy. However, after Buddy took care of his business, we strolled over to the blvd.
As I expected the place was packed. It is Victory Day as so there were even more people out since it is a holiday. We walked along the fringes of the blvd when I heard some string instruments. Of course, I had to see who and how many were playing, so we walked to the center of the blvd and found 3 young ladies playing.
I stayed as long a Buddy would allow me. It seemed like some of their notes bothered his ears, but definitely not mine.
I decided to walk further down the blvd to see if the break dancers were out. I noticed a huge crowd where they usually set up shop and so I knew they were dancing. I went to the back side of where they were dancing and watched from one of the benches. Buddy did such a great job of sitting with me.
Eventually we went and sat directly behind them and Buddy entertained a little girl while her mom watched the dancers. After they finished a set, I spoke to several of them and found Ruslan, one of the dancers, and spoke with him for a few minutes. It is interesting how, whenever I come near, many of the dancers will come up and talk with me now.
So, as you can see, I meant what I posted on FB yesterday. I am thankful to have such a nice blvd so near to my apartment and now that spring/ summer is here I get to enjoy it even more.
