Make sure to secure the door when I am gone. There are many dangerous people who wanna take things from Americans, and also kidnap them. Good night!

I love Eastern European apartments. Where else would you find such an awesome bedspread? (Except, of course, perhaps in a certain genre of movies produced in the San Fernando Valley during the 1970s?)

Yes, I slept here.

If you are looking for a place to stay in Kiev, I’d recommend checking out kievapts.com. The apartments are decently priced, especially when compared to a hotel, and it’s much more comfortable than a hostel. We really couldn’t have asked for a better location – our place was about a 2-3 minute walk to Independence Square.

The building’s exterior could use a bit of work…

I stole the title of this post from the movie Everything is Illuminated. If you haven’t seen this film, and you’ve spent some time in Eastern Europe, you need to put it on your Netflix queue ASAP.

    I was searching for something else, but I noticed this thumbnail in google. Believe it or not, I actually own a bedspread exactly like it…I mean exactly, I double checked. I picked it up somewhere in Canada I think, though I can totally see it in Eastern Europe.
