Odessa

A journal entry from: November 2011 until...

A couple of nights in Odessa mooching around the city.

I was looking forward to going to see some of the thousands of kilometres of catacombs that surround the city but due to some 'organsational issues' it wasn't to be. 

An unexpected highlight of Odessa was meeting Valeriy in the street - he was wearing an ACDC shirt so we started talking about music - he was on his way to a weekly meeting of heavy metal music lovers in the local park. 

Next stop Chisinau, via Transnistria - meaning I won't get stamped into Moldova. I hope that doesn't lead to any issues when I try to leave the country.
