Jamie and Dasha arrived at the beginning of the month and spent a few days in Kyiv before heading south to Crimea for 10 days or so. They returned to the city yesterday evening (12-hour drive) and are now trying to fit so many things into a couple of days. They fly out on Friday, and have a family birthday celebration tomorrow. We felt fortunate to get a few hours this afternoon and early evening with them.
Of course, we had to spend some time at the Balcony Cafe, a new favorite destination for locals and visitors alike.
(Yes, Lynne, Jamie is using a UMO mug…and we’re proud of it!!)
