Today we're docked in this large industrial city on the Dnieper River. We did a city tour and viewed the city which has been largely reconstructed post WW II. There was a lot of destruction during the Nazi occupation here.

My laptop computer died, so I'm at an internet cafe at the moment.

One of the most fun things we did during the last few days on the river was the Cossack horsemanship demonstration we saw yesterday in Zaporozhye. It really was quite entertaining. Not only do the Cossacks ride well, they also can use a whip with precision and with great comic touches, as some of our shipmates discovered a little too close for comfort!

So without a working computer anymore, I will have to resort to the comfort of the tasty Ukrainian Vodka that is in abundance here.
