We heard a news report earlier in the week that they had found piranha in one of the lakes here in Ukraine. I thought it one of those types of reports that show up periodically that are long on sensationalism but short on facts. My problem with it was how a tropical fish could survive the harsh winter here. So I dismissed it.

Turns out I was wrong. Looks like they found a few in a Kasianka Lake in eastern Ukraine. I guess they can survive the harsh winters because it looked like they did here.

So now I have a pressing question to pose: has anybody looked into whether there are crocodiles in the sewers of Kiev yet?
