My neighbor from Iowa came to visit me. Took the opportunity to be a tourist. Here are pics from the L’viv Opera, a late 19th Century Mansion is disrepair (the guard dog’s ferocity didn’t live up to the warning sign), a place called Stilsko where there existed a city in the 10th century — descended of present day Croatians according to our guide, and a nearby ski area called Slavs’ke. We took the chair lift up into the cold. There’s a surprising little commercial area on top of the mountain. We ate verenyky and kabobs to warm up from the cold chairlift ride.
