Good question Tomas. I went and looked at my photo of the diorama in the museum to see if there were any horses shown on or debarking from the boats depicted there but no luck. I think maybe some of the ancestors of the Cossacks were of Viking (Varangian) origin and the horses came after they arrived in the Ukraine, but I admit I am at the edge of my memory of what I was told while I was in Ukraine.

As to SPC50, I have two of my three entries submitted. Like you, I had to go out and take a couple new shots which only serve to illustrate how invisible trains have become in this country. Anyway, I will hold my nose and send in my third entry over the weekend. Also, will try to do some advertising like you do were I can.

Have a good weekend, Mark

I was kidding. These boats look too small to hold any horses, plus they would not be happy bopping in the waves!

great that my campaign worked. I have about 30 photos of trains and subways to go through.

In this country, trains are still important, so no shortage of opportunities!
