Ukraine: Polissya Travel

MoldovAnn shares stories from her work-related small-town and rural travel in Ukraine's Ivankivsky and Polissky districts: “We saw storks everywhere. Their huge nests sit on top of electricity posts, water towers, lamp posts, and other tall structures. Storks are considered good luck, and disturbing one of their nests is an unthinkable act. It doesn’t matter how much their nest might interfere with or even damage a structure, if a pair of storks decide to nest somewhere, it’s their spot now.”
