Only in Kyiv...
Sunday, Sept. 21:
The first ever celebration of Car-Free Day (link in RUS, photos) - and, a kilometer or so away, on Khreshchatyk, Renault Formula One Team testdriving their cars.
And, on top of that, it rained heavily all day long. It is raining still.
The F1 folks spent the whole night and then part of Sunday preparing for their event. At 3 AM, for example, they decided to test their sound equipment at our end of Khreshchatyk. Bastards.
As for the Car-Free Day, I really like what it says (in UKR) on this woman's t-shirt:
MY CITY IS A PARK, NOT A PARKING LOT
