While you and I both know I actually live in Harkushyntsi, I find myself in Mirgorod probably four times a week (it's only 3UAH and buses run all day) so I've since adopted it as my own (a subsequent post will be provided on Harkushyntsi in the near future).

Poltava region in general is very flat and has a large farming community so I want to buy a bike asap. A few weekends ago I went on a 45km bike ride to the surrounding villages and it wasn't too exhausting - I excited for what else I can find here.
Things I've already found via велосипед (bicycle):
- a lake
- herds of animals
- gigantic sunflower / wheat fields
- possible camp sites
Today I went on a photo tour of the city with a buddy and here are some of the results.
and yes, that last photo says Robin Hood, and yes, that is a castle.
