Before leaving an airport in the CIS, make sure to have your baggage wrapped, so things don't walk out of it!

Before I knew about wrapping, I took some pictures in the airport, put my camera in my suitcase and flew to England. Once there, I took out my camera and tried to take photos. "No memory card!' How could that be?! They actually left the camera (thank goodness!) and stole the 16GB card!

G-d forbid to fly somewhere without a fancy manicure!

This guy stands a good chance of waking up minus the phone on his belt!

This is our favorite sign in Borispol. Their toilet is permanently “disabled!”

Freshly squeezed orange juice is simply called “fresh.”

The gardeners.

BTW this is the 1st time we've seen anything even remotely resembling a normal lawn mower here!

First you need to empty a water bottle and cut it in half to make a funnel…

Lunchtime! Anyone hungry?

There is a walk of about 4 blocks between terminals!

Not too visible – he is sweeping with a straw broom!

There are probably more chairs outside the airport than inside!

These are what wealthy men wear.

The heels are typical for women. I even saw girls BOWLING in them!!!

Interesting to know what the heck is in this suitcase!

Incredible set - so full of different perspectives - love the shoes, and the idea of manicures (I guess pedicures as well?I mean, you would need them after wearing some of those shoes!)) so much to discover and all in one airport! Fantastic set - thanks so much for sharing.

This is quite the photojournalistic set Leah. It looks like an interesting experience which you have documented. Wrapped bags????

First, I LOVE #20!! Second, the 'wrapped' bags is one of those wonderful things one would only see on PB!
