I love reading your blog Merilee. I just recently moved to Kiev with my husband and three kids and have found your writing real funny and informative as well.(we used to live in Chicago, ages ago in another life and loved it there. Still secretly hoping to meve there one day) One question, can you share the info on that place outside Kiev that has the cabins? Looked real interesting and would love to take our bunch there sometime. (once the whole country defrosts) Thanks for keeping my spirits up in this tough transition!
