Glimpses of Odessa, Ukraine

Odessa, Ukraine. This is a typical courtyard in Odessa.

These pictures give you a glimpse of what Odessa, Ukraine, looked like when we arrived in 1996. Since then, the city has undergone major rebuilding and refurbishing, and parts of it are really gorgeous. I will show the contrast in another post.

Open door from a street in Odessa

We found the people’s hearts to be just as open and beautifully intricate and receptive as this door.
