Perhaps most surprising was my encounter with a raw food restaurant, just off Maidan. I pondered villagers eating their dandelion greens and foraged berries while I ate my green soup and fresh pressed juice. Ever-changing Kyiv-- a reminder that our food cultures are always combinations of old and new.

We didn't ever get to a market visit, but I found it interesting that in many part of Donetsk, a highly industrial city, it still feels like a village, with residents intensively cultivating their small plots. Here's a bit of what I saw. At the top of the post, Lyumilla cultivates her front yard, just half a block away from a factory.
And as we walked along another part of the city, on a colder gray day, we saw many people, mostly women, out planting and preparing.
