Photographer's Note

This is a waiting hall of Chuguiv railway station. As you can see, TrekEarth’s shots are demonstrated there in a special monitor for the passengers’ entertainment on the round-the-clock routine. For more esthetic effect, masterpieces of the world-famous painter Ilya Repin are put astride the monitor. The exhibition is in great favor among not only passengers, but also among people of Chuguiv, in particular the homeless, which are willing to live there to look at such beautiful images right along.

At the same time please accept my warmest greetings on all today’s (April 1) events, holidays, notable days and observances, in particular, the 200-th anniversary of Nikolai Gogol, the 120-th anniversary of the first sale of a dishwasher, the International Day of Birds and, of course, the Day of Laugh or April Fools' Day.

POSTPROCESSING OF THE NOTE
As a response to the critiques I would like to give some more explanations.
Although this post was on April 1, there were only two exaggerations here. Firstly, pictures in the monitor are rather TE-like. Maybe they are from TE, but I do not know exactly. Secondary, this particular waiting hall is not for all. They open it only for such honorable people as our tourist group.
And finally, not all of Ukrainian railway stations can boast of such artistic waiting room. Only Chuguiv can, because Ilya Repin was born there.
