Prof. L. Melnyk’s direct speech. Odessa always sparkles with smiles. They appear even in inscriptions that can be found in the streets of the city. This time, I was lucky enough to collect a whole collection of such inscriptions...
Near the university, where the conference was held, I was lucky to find the street in which Anna Akhmatova once lived.
... And not far from the Railway station just on the square I met a flock of dolphins.
