      THE STREETS OF CZERNOWITZ.

      THE STREETS OF THE OLD TOWN ARE VERY OLD INDEED.
      SOME ARE VERY NARROW AND ALL ARE PAVED WITH COBBLESTONES.
      THE COBBLESTONES ARE FROM ANOTHER AGE.
      AT THAT TIME ONLY HORSE DRIVEN CARRIAGES WERE IN USE.
      AS TIME PASSED AND THE MOTORCAR MADE ITS APPEARANCE THE ROADS SEEM RATHER INADEQUATE.
      COBBLESTONES ARE NOT FOR CARS.
      CARS ARE NOT FOR COBBLESTONES.
      THEY HARM EACH OTHER.
      AN AVERAGE STREET OF OLD CZERNOWITZ IS A JOY FOR EVERY SHOCKABSORBER MANUFACTURER.
      THE ROAD IS DISASTRUOUS TO THE SHOCKS AND AFTER A SHORT USE THEY MUST BE REPLACED.
      BUT IN CZERNOWITZ YOU DON'T REPLACE SHOCKS OR BROKEN WINDSHIELDS OR BUMPERS.
      PEOPLE JUST DON'T HAVE THE CASH FOR SUCH NON -ESSENTIAL COMMODITIES.
      SO THEY RATTLE ALONG WITH NO SHOCKS AND THE CHASSIS AND THE BODY OF THE CAR GETS A TERRIBLE BEATING , BUT THE CHASE GOES ON UNTIL HE BITTER END.
      IF NOT ENOUGH FOR THE COBBLES, THE STREETS HAVE POTHOLES AND ALL KIND OF ROADWORK IS GOING ON , SEWAGE REPAIRS ,EXCAVATIONS, TRENCHES ARE LAID AND PEOPLE ARE PROSPECTING FOR GOLD.
      PEOPLE HAVE ALL KIND OF CARS: LATEST VERSION MAZDA AND MERCEDES ALONG WITH COLLECTORS ITEMS OF LADA FIAT AND OTHER SOVIET ERA JUNK IN DIFFERENT STAGES OF DISINTEGRATION.

      TAXIS ARE IN NO BETTER CONDITION.
      FOR 10 HRIVNIA A RIDE , THEY TAKE YOU ANYWHERE , SO DO PRIVATE CARS FOR EXTRA INCOME.
      ANYHOW , THE STREETS ARE FULL WITH CARS AND IT IS HARD TO CROSS A STREET.
      IN MY TIME , IF I SAW 5 CARS A DAY , IT WAS A GOOD DAY!
