good bye....

Saturday, April 4, 2009

Well, it is that time.  We are leaving for the airport.  We cannot believe this is happening, and have so many emotions.  I am trying my best to keep it's not going well.

We will post as often as possible, and don't know when we will be able to call home.  We will be in Kiev around 5:00 Sunday, Kiev time.  We will be 7 hours ahead of Detroit.  I am too nervous to do the math.

Thank you everyone for your all of your kindness.  We appreciate all of you!

red line or green line?

Friday, April 3, 2009

As we prepare to leave (tomorrow!), I am reading conflicting experiences and advice on whether to go through the red line or green line at customs in Ukraine.  We will be carrying the maximum amount of cash allowed, will have the standard electronics (camera, laptop...), and no gifts (taking them on the second trip).  If you have any advice from your own experience, please share! :)
