i think there might be something wrong with my computer

again. So I’ll be putting another call out to Yuri, and hopefully he’ll be able to fix it like last time. Until then, updates will be sporadic.

snow oranges

The markets along the sidewalks seem to be open year round, no matter what the weather. The ladies that work these small stands are pretty hard core. Nice to know I’ll still be able to buy an orange off the street in January.

awesome wintery goodness

my endless fascination with snow continues…

I’m not sure what it is - I grew up in Chicago, I’m very very used to snow - but for some reason I can’t get over the snow here. Maybe it’s because we haven’t had a real good snow in a few years in Chicago, maybe it’s just because Kiev is finally living up […]

back to winter

the greatest show on earth

My friend and I went to this mall near work for a little retail therapy on Friday. While we were there, there was this announcement, and she got excited and what I thought she’d said was: “Oh cool, we have to go watch the dog show - they have these tiny dogs that jump into […]

this is why i don’t take the bus

Mostly because I still can’t read…well, OK, I can read, I just have no idea what the words I can sound out mean.


There was a bit of familiar this halloween thanks to some of the people I work with. A few pumpkins showed up, all jack-o-lanterned out, which was totally awesome.
