What a country, Ukraine! I thought I'd be heading to a country that would be similar to my home country of Poland. Boy, was I wrong! The former Soviet states are in a time warp of sorts. The masses have so little and a few, very lucky ones have it all. It reminds me of the dotcom bomb, some got out early enough (the lucky few) and the rest of us suffered with lost jobs, earnings, stocks, etc. It really is about timing for those that are now the stars of politics, business, etc. And all those years of Soviet domination left a population with little creativity and imagination. Yet many are still so happy with that which they do have.
Well, I'll be back soon enough to relay a few stories.
