Another summer sojourn in Amsterdam, another opportunity to add to my country count. Due to a somewhat screwier schedule than usual, this year it was only one country added ("Only" one- my life, it is so full of hardships, no?) but it was a good one.
With four days off, I flew to Kiev, expecting a couple of pretty Orthodox churches, lots of varenyky (Ukrainian raviolis stuffed with potato), a profusion of cyrillic and some general seediness. I found three out of the four.
