Yanmark festival of ukraine

As you all know,i m doing my medicine in ukraine(its an eastern european country).The people here celebrate a yanmark festival annually in this time of the year..it starts with a huge gathering who celebrate the spirit of ukraine with cultural activities, official and political speeches and finally exhibition.
this year the gathering was huge than ever...
there was a huge huge gathering and all the cultural performances for a couple of hours,then we moved on to the more exciting part the exhibition..all kinds of stuff is exhibited like the traditional ukranian dresses,their arts and crafts,home decor,fashion stuff clothes,shoes awesome jackets,then comes the never ending chain of food stalls...
the food stalls serve all kinds of ukranian food like different salads,awesome shashlik(they call kabobs like that)..the kabobs are worth everything,beer,icecreams,pastries,cakes and all..
the kabobs really need a special mention..they are yummilicious and a musthave in this festival...the ukranian ppl are very good at living life care-free.they just never over-work,spend most of the money they earn not like us indians who save for rainy day (though i love this character of ours the most),they drink like there is no next hour...they basically enjoy life 
I had a great time with my friends munching on mushroom flavour popkorn,ate yummilicious chicken kabobs with multivitamin fruit juice and ya bought myself a flower pot and fab earrings...

  10. Very interesting to learn a little about the Ukranian culture. I have never heard of mushroom flavored popcorn before. I love mushrooms and popcorn, but cannot imagine them combined.
