A Rural Fix

Today I want to jump in the car and drive to the countryside. I need those smells - they're superior to city scents. My mind is recharged by the visual surprises which come from such an adventure. Since this is impossible today, I'm sharing some images...the kind that remind.

They were made in September, 2011, in the rural heart of Ukraine. Somewhere west of Kyiv, in the Zhytomyr oblast.

There is nothing better than cruising the countryside with the windows down.
