Today was an up and down emotional day for the group as we travelled to the gravesite of Taras Shevchenko in Kaniv. It was emotional to sing at his gravesite, and overlook the majestic Dnieper River. Although not 100% accurate in their article, our appearance in Kaniv made the news. The museum on the site is well worth checking out. I hope to go back sometime, when I can view everything at a more relaxed pace.
We ate lunch at a crumbling hotel near the museum. Don't judge a meal by it's location, the food was great!
In Kirovograd, we stayed at Hotel Europe. This was probably the latest I stayed up, and involved a late night journey to purchase Spiderman chips.

Today we went to the Ukrainian National Dance Museum where we toured around the displays and watched the dance group in their workshop.
After this we continued on our journey to Kyiv. Where we checked into Hotel Ibis and went to bed.
