Easter

In Ukraine you will know that it is Easter when you are not able to get your favorite cake, because all bakeries are filled with just one type of cakes.



This is the cake that they will bring to church and bless. I think it is cool that they are using cakes instead of dry crackers like in Denmark. Sunday afternoon I went to a church to see them bless the cakes but I was told later that they do it around 4 o'clock in the morning.




These cakes are everywhere.




This is one big Easter cake.




On Sunday I went out to see why there were so few people on the streets. It turned out that a lot of people had gone to this concert hall. I didn't really know what I was going into but it ended like a religious meeting with people doing manic hand gestures and clapping. They did not allow me to make anymore photos but I can tell that the show was sort of like an American gospel concert though the music and dancers had a very distinct Russian flavour.

Hah, diversity of cakes during Easter time is a problem, indeed:)
