Vlad and Luda live in a village just outside Odessa with 6 dogs and 4 cats.
And they have welcomed me into there home. This morning I took the minibus into the city with Luda, she went on to work and set me loose in Odessa. I took a picture of the place were I would have to take the bus back to there home.
The old city center is build in squire blocks so it is pretty easy to navigate none the less I bought a map and quickly found my way to the coast.
Wolsly has made it to the black sea.
There are some really beautiful buildings, parks and monuments here.
Old city wall I guess:
It even had a sign post telling me I was in fact not that far from Volgograd, Tbilisi and Yerevan. But it will still be a while before I see those city’s.
Tomorrow I will clean the bike, boots and my leather trousers a bit and make it an easy day. The fact I had to drag the +250 Kg bike out of the mud did not help my back much, nothing serious just some sore mussels. So the rest will be good.
Then Thursday I will continue my trip and move slowly towards the Russian border.
I will try to meet up with Vallerij this weekend.
P.S. Picture of the route will follow
