Ismail – It`s very close, but still a long long way from Romania (EU!) to Ukraine (NOT EU!!!). Three days ago Johannes and I took an adventurous trip from Galati on the Romanian Danube to Ismail, a dreary port town on the Ukrainian part of the Danube, where the economy seems to have come to a standstill. In order to get to Ukraine, one has to walk (!!!) through another country: Moldova, for one and a half kilometres. Then you get to Reni, a dusty Ukrainian town, from where it is still 70 kilometres to Ismail, hometown of the driver of this beautiful Lada. So, here comes the question of the day: who is older, the driver or the Lada?
