Fifteenth in a seriesIt was so hot! There were constant mirages of water on the road! Perfectly in step! Yes, on the highway in Kiev! No idea how they built these houses in the river, or how they are reached! Funicular. A funicular, also known as an inclined plane or cliff railway, is a cable railway in which a cable attached to a pair of tram-like vehicles on rails moves them up and down a steep slope; the ascending and descending vehicles counterbalance each other. Top of funicular. Old cobbled streets Rear view of Central Synagogue Ceiling in back of King David restaurant, where we ate lunch Note the “people in the windows” on the advertisement on the central department store. Shucks! He grabbed the parking space first! I really like the quaint old architecture so much in abundance in Kiev. The circus building. Most Ukrainian cities have one, with constantly changing traveling shows.
