With An Air Of Pavitas
The Pavitas Blog.
I went to the ballet for the first time ever. The Lviv opera house was playing SWAN LAKE tonight, and I thought it would be a good introduction. I was right. It was beautiful. And the theater is breathtaking. Afterward I was able to explore the city a bit.
I drank too much at lunch, so the first half of the ballet was a drunken struggle. But I persisted!!
WHAT I LEARNED
I went to visit the Lviv museum of historical architecture. The museum is open air in the middle of a park. They have genuine recreations of traditional churches and homes from Ukrainian provincial life. I learned my great grandfather lived in a house like these in the mountains of south west Ukraine before moving to the outskirts of Lviv. After the visit we had lunch.
Tomorrow I meet with my mother's family in Lviv for lunch.
