Houses of Ukraine

Friday was perfect weather for our excursion (I love how ELL word choices influence my own use of English) to the National Museum of Ukrainian Architecture and Culture.  We enjoyed the opportunity to visit so many regions of Ukraine all in the span of a few hours.  Remarkably, the houses are from the 1960s and 70s.  They seemed much older to us but knowing this was the Soviet Union at that time puts it in perspective.  Unfortunately, not all the houses were open for inside tours.  We'll have to go back again!

George used such a wood-heated shower during his year internship in Nagydobrony.

The furniture is so familiar!

I love the wood-stove and electric vent above it.

Cossack farm - there was even a baby sleeping on a hay bed in one of the outbuildings. :) This farm was prior to the 1960s.

George was impressed how the wood panels were each one long piece.
