Driving east to the Polish-Ukrainian border for the second time and once again reminded by the fragility of us humans and our co-existence.
The fact that we had a pregnant woman, a car-sick 3-year old with a healthy appetite for pizza and pringles as well as an over-anxious lady who had been hospitalised in Leipzig for a panic attack created some additional challenges and improved my stopping-under-almost-any-circumstances-skills dramatically.
But at the same time did we get numerous positive reminders, compliments and appreciation for the things we do and the T-shirt I wore for a day. It appears that certain words and expressions are truly international and are understood by almost everyone regardless language, age or nationality.
The below picture captures the trip quite well. People that actively help, those who have their ‘heart’ in the right place (or on the right car) and the innocent Ukrainians that need our help.
