I know, I know – it has been a while since I wrote anything – life here though seems to take up more time than writing about it. Looking back through the blog it could be argued that I am taking a cynical line towards living here – but in honesty all I am doing is writing about what I see. The funny parts inevitably are related to the Ukrainian system – which is still unfathomable. Take the football match last night….
It is Ukraine v France. It is coming up to half time and myself and a colleague thought “hmmm, -2 degrees – a coffee would be nice” …so, out we go to the coffee tent to be met by a single man trying to serve 10 people at once. They all wanted coffee.
So far – so good.
Then he turns around
…fills the small domestic kettle with water
….and switches it on.
