Kiev, Ukraine

Our compartment on the train to Minsk. Selfish Americans that we are, we reserved an entire 4-berth compartment for ourselves while many Ukrainians made the 11-hour, overnight trip sitting on hard wooden benches in third class.

We purchased most of the food in the Kiev train station. Only tea is served on the train. We brought the "tablecloth" from home, a handkerchief purchased from an Indian boutique in New York.
