The Old Country

It's time for a stop in Peremyliv, a small village between Ternopil and Chernivtsi.
Cousin Arsen painted this sign.  It says: "The Village of Peremyliv - 443 years"  Take that, America!  Anyhow, to get to this sign, start at the one below... 
This is out on the "highway."
Go down this road for a while...
Go a little further past the sign and the church and you'll arrive at Cousin Arsen's place.
This is Cousin Arsen's backyard.  The river below is called the Taina.  Back in the fifties, the Communists deemed it too meandering, so they ordered it to be straightened.  And straıghtened it was.  What a bunch of wacky, murderous jokers!
 This is Cousin Arsen's neighbor's house.  He ain't doın' so bad!
This is Cousin Arsen's dog, Bari.  He's 18 years old, has four teeth (total), one eye and enormous testicles.
This is Bari's replacement, Rex.  He's kind of an idiot.  Here he is making a weird face.
 Here's Cousin Arsen with Rex who is looking more normal.
Here are Cousin Arsen's kids.  Yeah, two of them are identical twins.  I can tell them apart.  The three of them are very entertaining, but they're nothing but trouble. 

More to follow...
