Long wait, short ride

Another long wait getting out a city in Ukraine… The western I got, the longer the times… This guy picked me up because I reminded him of some friend, so he actually turned around.

Cop Blocker without a Plate

Guy in a ridiculously low suspension on his BMW, which had no license plate. Low suspension is cool, but not on Ukrainian roads. Had to stop multiple times to check if he hadn't destroyed his car. Worked in some MLM scheme, which he referred to as life insurance, however, he seemed to suggest that the way it worked was you'd pay in and then get a payout at the end with some… (read on in Trip)

Marshrutka

Finally in a somewhat reasonable spot and after a long wait, I hitch a van which is not obviously a marshrutka, once I approach it becomes obvious and I tell the driver that I'm hitching. He sighs and says "get in". Direct ride to Dnipro.

Donbass family

After a pretty long wait, I finally hitched a father with his little daughter, however, they were going in the wrong direction. I still asked for a short lift to what I though might me be a better spot. They were from Debalceve, which is right on the front line. Told me a lot of people from there resettled in Kharkov. It quite sobering to talk to someone who had lived in a war zone.

The Caucasian

Nice Lezgin guy who was born in Azerbaijan. He seemed a little too nice, so I became a bit suspicious. He topped it with "Are you gay?" when I told him I had no girlfriend, so I thought "Ok, here we go" and said "No." He actually surprised me and said "Good, there's a lot of them in the West". I told him I thought it was the same everywhere, regardless of the place, but in… (read on in Trip)

The Almaty Russians

An ethnically Russian family moving to Voronezh, having taken advantage of Putin's resettlement program for ethnic Russians. They got a grant for which they bought an apartment and left their old life in Almaty behind. Had a very long conversation with the dad (I sat with him in their van with their dog, while his wife and son drove their second car) about everything, but… (read on in Trip)
