This is UK (I)

UK is neither Ulu Klang nor United Kingkom.
Uk is Ukraine.
It is situated in the south-eastern part of Central Europe.
The country is home to 46 million people.
Independence Day fall on 24th August.
Holiday in Ukraine is only 10 days which are very less compare to my country.
(New year, Christmas, Women day, Labor dayx2, Easter, Victory Day, Whitsunday, Constitution day & Independence Day).
The Ukrainian language is the only official language in Ukraine, while Russian is also widely spoken.
Ukraine is one of the world's main centers of sugar production.
It produces sugar both for own needs and for export.

I stay at one of the city in Ukraine.
Iliyichevsk – one of the largest ports of the region by general cargoes handling, where 2 major international transport corridors of east Europe approach each other.

It is situated in northwestern part of the Black Sea.
It is 12 miles south-west of Odessa, where another busy city.
The climate of the country is moderate with 4 seasons.

How is the life at here?

No matter where I go, I have to be : ).
Let we talk about the weather here.
I have captured some photos here and hope you enjoy it.

Winter (December ~ February)
Winter is rather mild, with no severe frosts but with regular snowfalls everywhere except the south. The rivers and lakes freeze in winter. The average winter temperature varies -1 to -23 degree.

This is the view at facing the black sea.

It is freeze outside.

If raining in my country, I dare to naked and play outside my house.
But, I cannot do it during snowing time.  It is damn cold ~ -20degree.
(I mean when I am kid less than 6 years old).

I am trying to make a snowman here. But, I am fail.
I have to wait until the ice going to melt a bit.
How can the birds stand for the cold?

 Do you have any idea why the cat climbs on the tree?
It tries to catch the sleeping birds.
Spring (March - May)
How about spring moment?

It is not that cold around 10 to 20 degree.
I like this kind of weather! Nice!

This is the place you can dance like crazy man.

Flowers start to bloom.
Just like starting a new chapter of life.

This is my colleague and me (2 years ago).
Summer (June ~ August)

Do you know how is Summer here.
Woo…. It is dry and hot ( 25 to 35 degree).

A Little garden located in this city.

Everyone like Summer. I do.
I like the bright and blue sky.
Do you like it?

This is black sea.  It is quite famous here.
This is the moment everyone enjoy their swimming here.

If you are lucky, you can spot naked men & women here.
Please, don’t be surprise! It is normal here.
Can you see me? Naked on the seaside?

I like sunflower as well.
Look! It happy everyday!

Bees are flying around to fly their Honey!
Do you find your honey as well?

Autumn (September ~ November)
I dislike autumn.
It is a bit sad and trees going to take of their clothes as well.

Can you see, almost naked!

This is one of the churches located in this city.

Sometimes, you can enjoy the rain too.
There are a lot small shops like this in Ukraine.
You can buy a lot food here too.

Start cold a bit!
Hence, everyone will wear winter clothes as well.
I like the baby wear as photo above.
Look just like a small cute giant!
