On Orthodox Epiphany, which is celebrated on January 19, there is a tradition to plunge into ice-cold water, it has become popular again in Kyiv after the fall of Soviet Union.
There was some snow on the beginning of the week, but everything dried away on a next day, and it feels like spring again.
I was so inspired by reconstructions of Kazimir Malevich’s lectures (I wrote about it in here). I bought a book called ‘Malevitch’ by Jean-Claude Marcadé at Rodovid publishing house. I love their books, they have an awesome office on 17, Khreschatyk street (on the top floor) with a beautiful view from the window.
My friend Jason (btw like his page on fb 😉 ) is working on a documentary about Ukraine and searching for people who he can interview. Me and my friend Natalya came to talk about how we can help, but instead ended up playing tabletop games 🙂
Many places in Kyiv take Halloween decorating quite seriously 🙂 During Halloween I’ve been at Molodist IFF awards party and after party, so I caught the Halloween spirit on the day after.
