All of a sudden, I'm so sick of Moscow. I wish we had a dacha or relatives in a village. Or a car.
veronika, welcome to kaniv (it's damn *cool* there now, u know :-)07.28.05 - 10:07 pm
Thank you, estee!!! First, I need to get back to Kyiv, of course, and that's sort of problematic right now... But thank you for at least reminding me that the world isn't limited to Moscow...07.28.05 - 10:35 pm
I feel that way quite often about Chicago where I live now. We have a car, but the problem here is that there's no where to go. To go anywhere halfway nice - like northern Wisconsin - is a good six hour drive. Much too long for the weekend unfortunately...07.28.05 - 11:16 pm
Privet Veronica,In the morning I'm driving my truck to the cabin in Montana to entertain my relatives who showed up from California. I'll probably have a good time, but I wish I were going to Moscow instead. That would be cool for me.You guys have an invitation to come to the cabin. Hope you can make it over sometime.BTW, that is a beautiful photo of a butterfly. The other photo is cool as well. I'm starting to think that you can't take a bad photo!07.29.05 - 7:55 am
Don, dear, thank you, both for the invitation and for liking my photos! Getting to the States is a lot more difficult than getting to Kaniv - first, we have to go to Kyiv, and then there's the whole U.S. visa procedure, a pain in the ass as well as quite a lottery. With my fear of flying, I'll probably only go to the States when they no longer require Ukrainians to get a visa - I doubt it'll ever happen... I do have moments when I feel I'd be able to spend 8 hours on the plane, and 8 more on the way back, and it'd be nice, in these moments, to just buy a ticket and go, without having to think of visas and stuff... Anyway, have a wonderful time in Montana - and do visit us in Ukraine and/or Russia sometime!!!***Jeffrey, you reminded me of what a treat Chicago used to be when I lived in Iowa City... Four hours and you're in a different world!.. 07.29.05 - 11:39 am
Don is right - your photograghy is amazing. I am so desperate to get out of New York city - that a help wanted ad for a fruit picker in Canada is really tempting me.07.29.05 - 2:58 pm
Thank you, Hello! I wish I could say that the only reason I'm not helping someone to pick fruit in the fresh air is because I'm pregnant, but that would be such a lie - I am and have always been lazy...07.29.05 - 3:07 pm
