Walter,

As far as economic conditions go, let me give you an example. A two liter Coca-Cola cost about $0.60 in Ukraine. ohmy.gif And also, no sales tax of any kind.

When was the last time you bought two liters of anything in the USA for $0.60?

All of the wealth is in Kiev, the capital. The rest of the country is woefully under maintained.

Thanks Norm! Photos would be great, if you have them to post. People in the West (especially here in America), for the most part, live in blissful ignorance, regarding the terrible conditions 75% of the world lives in. God bless America! When we help the rest of the world, we are generally not recognized for it and often are despised! Perhaps, envied is a better word. blink.gif sad.gif ohmy.gif cool.gif Regards, Walter

A playground made on the foundation of a collapesed building. sad.gif There are swings and a slide to the right that did not make it into the photo. Notice the trash in the brick areas.

Notice the decay on the buildings and roads. This picture was taken from my room.

Thanks Norm! Too bad they didn't have the decency to print alternating images of Lenin and Stalin on that toilet paper (the two monsters who so degraded Russia and the Ukraine). blink.gif mad.gif ohmy.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif
