DK, seriously, you have got to stop posting these pics ! Or else I'm going to have to just drop everything here, and go and visit the place for myself, so I can just get it off of my chest. Sheesh. I'm mean I know I just got to New Zealand, but the Architecture in Kiev is just haunting me in the most awesome way ever.

Very nicely taken thought.
