The line of automobiles starts more than a mile away. as thousands of Ukrainians pour into the neighborhood of Mezhyhirya, about 10 miles from the center of Kiev. They are on a pilgrimage to see the palace of former President Viktor Yanukovych, a man on the run.
"Palace," it turns out, is an understatement. The massive estate is estimated at 340 square acres, with a main home, a guest house, an enclosed garage the size of an urban parking deck, a spa, a meeting hall, a zoo, a golf course, a ballroom (still under construction) and a galleon on the Dnieper River.
