So, we finally left the city of Mariupol, which we came to know a little too well. Serena was ready and fixed and Estevam and the mechanic had a deep automotive moment, which reflected the importance of this “second part” of the rally.
After trying one last time to get through to Russia via the Foreign Trade Bureau, the 2 driving Improbables decided to donate the ambulance to an an ngo in Budapest, Hungary (we will detail later). However, the road was still long ahead. Arriving two days ago in one of their favorite Ukranian cities, Poltava, which actually looks like Coral Gables, Florida, Dhruv was on their mind. Alone in Kazakstan, the last news they had of Dhruv, was that he was safe off the train in Astana, having coffee with a mysterious girl that was obviously taller than him.
The following day, they arrived in Kiev where there was the possibility of donating the ambulance to the Ministry of Health. However, this would take too long and time pressed.
Coming to the day of today, they are in one of there other favorite Ukrainian cities, Lviv, which is definitely worth a longer visit.
