Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

So is the local hotel full of colorful blankets that look like grandma knitted them, or do the furnishing look like a western hotel? I originally wasn’t going to share this, but since you asked I can’t resist. This is the hotel room my fiancé and I ended up staying in in Lviv. No, I’m not joking. A...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Great fake ID, Mr Trump O0 I love the rubber duckies in the tub. What is that, soup? My wife wants to know. I thought maybe the sign by the pizza (right-hand side) meant little cake* but Google translate says Galician? Galician legend? Interesting. Thank you for taking the time to post these 🙏 Edit...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

(Just updated with a couple more pics :)) That transparent roof is neat! I know a guy who doesn’t like to sit at outdoor cafes because he’s worried that birds will drop something in his cup or some kind of plant detritus will fall in there. This would work for him O0 It's definitely a cool cafe. On...

This city is genuinely gorgeous, and the locals are displaying such strength in carrying on their day-to-day responsibilities despite the perpetual threat of destruction. Every city block has...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

We just arrived in Lviv. Closer to the war front than before in Mukachevo but, still reasonably safe. Air sirens happen regularly here, but actual damage is relatively rare. I’m in another cafe, but will post more substantively when I reach the hotel. IMG_4257.jpeg IMG_4262.jpeg IMG_4269.jpeg (Just ...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Smithers, what makes the coffee amazing? Re. your signature: What is the other 1% ? Just curious! Stay safe and don't get constipated. Perhaps buy ear plugs and nose closer clips for everyone? :-) The coffee is much stronger on average than in North America and there’s lots of unique takes on flavo...
