I've just bought 33 tulips for 11 hryvnias ($2.20) here at Besarabka. Three flowers for 1 hryvnia. From a babushka who wanted to get to the train station early, so that she could sit, not stand, in the elektrichka back home.
coincidently, i'll have to visit Bessarabka later today (people, isn't it the only place in town where beautiful flowers grow? especially, when one need something modest, tiny and unforgettable..) Pity, that that granny didn't like evening train :|
