Ukraine Travels

On Monday we left the Kiev (spelled Kyiv here) region to travel south to the Crimea where we still own our very first home we bought upon arriving in 1994. The Crimea is a large peninsula that hangs out into the Black Sea just north of Turkey (my geography got a lot better after we moved here). The terrain is mostly what they call a steppe region, that's a high plain, but it also has mountains that run down the eastern side of the peninsula. This is the location of the historical war-time meeting "Yalta Conference" held in 1945 with Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin. Well, I'm running down a historical rabbit trail, so I just wanted to say that we are spending a few days here to pick up our dog, do a scrapbook conference for a church, and visit some folks who are part of the church we helped start here in Nikolaevka.
