We started in Odessa

We arrived in Odessa, and arrived at the boat in mid afternoon. We are taking a Viking River Cruise on the Lomonosov. We travelled with the group of 16 from Istanbul, so already felt we  knew a few people. We are docked within sight of the Potemkin Steps.

Our boat.

Potemkin Steps.

Lots of history in this old city and everything is starting to blur. A lot of battles, memorial statues, interesting architecture.  So much to see. We went to the opera house, it has only been restored for a few years and is just beautiful.

That was a lovely evening, we saw La Boheme,  we sat in the fourth row, it was wonderful and then we got in the bus and went back to the boat. A late dinner was waiting for us.
