A flower licking bee, and ‘star’ the cow

The first time I visited Vinnitsa, I laughed because someone has written “Crazy Vinnitsa girl”, in English, along the side of the train station.

Well, they might be crazy, but they are obviously talented too!

I stumbled across this little award winner on Facebook and although Google did a bad job translating the article (, you don’t need to speak Ukrainian to understand that its genius. It is deeply Ukrainian (singing woman+cat!), and amusingly bonkers.

The flower-licking bee is my favorite.

Well done Darinka

Oh la la
