As we made the long drive, we noticed that each village tended to sell one thing or the other. We passed the village with a sugar plant, where big bags of sugar were for sale along the road. On the road we also saw truck after truck filled with sugar beets. In one village, potatoes for sale; in another, apples; another cabbages; and still another, sweet peppers.
For mile after mile, the incredible black dirt of Ukraine stretched out before us with the remainders of corn, sunflowers and other crops; and some fields set afire to burn off crops before winter. I've traveled over a great deal of Ukraine on this trip, and find so many lovely parts that I'd like to explore.
