Wow…holy crap…it’s been nearly a year since I had my last post about my trip to Ukraine. I’ve got at least six more days of a trip to write about. Not only that, I’m heading back there in about two weeks. My plan is to finish up my last trip recap before I head back so you can see how last trip affected me and what I’m about to encounter. Things will be VERY different because since my last trip they had Euromaidan, ousted their old corrupt president, elected a new one, had Russia annex Crimea from them and now there is a civil war in the east. Yeah…much has changed…
