This is a series of posts about my experience in Poland and Ukraine during the Russian military invasion and attempted takeover of Ukraine in 2022. Irpin is a quiet and modern city north of Kyiv. I had visited Irpin before the war and it was a great place. The buildings were new, the parks were nice, and I spent some time in the refugee center with Ukrainian refugees. Russia actually began its invasion of Ukraine in 2014 and throughout all that time, Ukrainians had their homes destroyed. This invasion was limited though to the Donbas region in the far east of the country, bordering Russia. In any case, some refugees had resettled in the peaceful and quiet city of Irpin.

What a great time we had at Brown City Camp 2021! Can you find yourself in this photo? Below is a link where you can download high resolution files from camp. The ones I posted elsewhere are small or medium resolution whereas these are much bigger and you can make prints from these. They’ll be backed up online here so feel free to come back and re-download if you’d like. If you do use some of my photos on social media or other places, please don’t forget to give me a shoutout. Hope to see ya’ll next year! High Resolution Photo Gallery
