Feeling Sad About Odessa

Reading yesterday about the violence  in Odessa  made me incredibly sad. Odessa is such a beautiful place and I remember what a wonderful time we had there a few years ago.

Hopefully, Odessa will return to a state of peace soon and visitors and citizens alike will be able to enjoy the beauty and charm of the city once again.
