Ustrzyki Dolne

To get to the cemetery in Ustrzyki Dolne my guide and I walked along a narrow footpath between garden plots on the edge of town; greeted the derelict chilling his vodka in a small, cold stream; jumped the stream; and climbed a small hill. The cemetery crowns the hill and flows down the slopes. On a golden October afternoon the cemetery seemed in complete and abandoned disarray with tombstones askew and sliding down the hillside. On a subsequent visit in May the cemetery was much more tranquil with lush green foliage. The only visitors seem to be the local residents who cut through the cemetery on their way to other destinations.
