2 week birthday party in Odessa!

August 19, 2010

Well dear readers, Odessa’s 216th official birthday starts on 26th August……and lasts until 10th September.

The actual birthday is on 2nd September……but anyone who knows anything about Ukrainians, let alone the population of Odessa will know that celebrations do tend to last quite a while.

Just a note of caution to readers of this blog who may be here during this time, it states that people from the 10 “twined cities” have been asked to attend.  In the case of Blighty, that twined city is Liverpool…….so expect the petty crime and pick-pocketing to go up…..and do not automatically blame the locals!
