Ok everybody,

I made it back from Ukraine yesterday with my fiencee.

Man, talk about cramming stuff into suitcases! ohmy.gif

We have made it here without incident and clear Homeland Security and UCIS with no problem (except the wait blink.gif .)

She quickly discovered that life is MUCH different in America than in Ukraine. She also noticed that some things in Ukraine are better than America and is a little home-sick. I think she will adjust fine.

Well, now it's off to Wal-Mart; I hope she doesn't faint! ohmy.gif

HJ,

Even though the standard of living may not be as high there, it is just a more simple lifestyle. The only down side is that most everything in (rural) Ukraine is done by hand (washing dishes, washing clothes, no running water in many houses, etc.)

Though I would much rather live here in the good ole' US of A, I can see why many people may have problems adjusting to our busy lifestyle.

Traffic is much better in Ukraine. wink.gif
