Climbing in Kiev is a very tricky business.
Imagine clinging to a bridge that has been designed, built, and maintained Ukrainians. Now there’s a scary thought. You’re in a country that was called the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic until 1991, and you’re trusting that the whole bridge isn’t about to collapse in on itself. That’s pretty hardcore, dude.
I’ve got to hand it to them though, those commies can pour concrete. They’ve got a fetish for the stuff. Never have I seen an entire nation so fascinated with creating architecture that’s almost as sullen as their weather. The only people who can pour concrete better than communists are the Romans, and they make everyone look like they’re playing around in a puddle of mud in front of a grass shack by comparison.
