September 28, 2007

The inhabitants of Illinetsk region, Vinnytsya oblast, batter cosmic soil and inhale sidereal dust every day. Three villages: Zhornyshche, Yakubivka and Luhove are located in the center of meteorite crater. It fell there four hundred million years ago. The weight of cosmic solid  was 50 million tons; its diameter was 300  meters. While collided with the Earth the alien burst out splitting into  three pieces. The meteorite sank deeply into the  ground, leaving burnt clay and soil around. The local peasants smartly use celestial gift and nowadays all surrounding houses, fences and roads are made of red, parched by cosmic  fire stone. It is porous and waterproof. Sceintists claim that radiation is somehow higher in this area, however, the peasants  beleive that they are rarely sick , moreover, there is a lot of longlivers in the villages. Children are frequently born  here and cow's milk is rich. The peasants joke about direct connection with cosmic space. It's interesting that abroad each single stone from Illinetsk cosmic crater is of great value...

The scientists cannot explain how the volcano appeared in the nearby Carpathian area. Some people claim that it has always been here

    Spring is the season for walking: there is no snow on the ground and hot weather would not yet cause you to
    sweat. It is time to ask yourself how often do you really look at the city around you. And if the answer is
    anything less than "all the time", put on your walking shoes and sunglasses and go for a walk!....

TRAVEL and TOURISM a Win-Win For Ukraine

July 11, 2002

Kyiv Post, Kyiv, Ukraine

Realizing how much potential Ukraine has, it is frustrating to see how painfully slow the country has been to tap its vast
resources for its own benefit and for the benefit of its people. One wonders when Ukraine will finally wake up, throw off
the bonds and lies of the past, open its economic system and move into the future with a sense of vision and hope.

FROM A PRESERVED CORPSE TO A DECAYING TOWN

    On the surface not much about Vinnytsia is inviting to tourists. It is just another Ukrainian provincial town
    suffering from Ukraine's general decline. A salary of about $100 a month is something most people can only
    dream of. Pre-revolution buildings have pre-revolution coat of paint and no potato grown at a dacha is safe

    Chekhov....
