This group provided excellent entertainment at the conference dinner.
Dancing after dinner
Evening near the city center, looking away from Pushkin's statue.
The steps leading to the harbor were designed as the main entrance to the city.
Since Eisenstein's film, they are also known as the "Potemkin steps." The sides
appear parallel because the width of the steps increases from top to bottom.
Romantically inclined tourist couples attach padlocks to the fence on this bridge
and then throw away the key to signify that their love will last forever! This is not
a local custom, and our guide thought this was a practice of Thai visitors.
The Odessa opera house rivals the best in the world, including Vienna and Paris.
After the conference ended, I went for a walk along the Black Sea in the Arcadia
district. Nothing seemed right for a photo, until I came upon this bridal party
posing on the beach.
