Just wanted to thank you for helping me in making my journey to the
Ukraine reality. My air-ticket was waiting for me at hotel George in Lvov. I just came back last night from my trip and it will take time to process all my impressions. As planned I visited Dnipropetrovsk, Charkiv and Kiev. They were all interesting in their own way, but Kiev is a real pearl.
In the summer it must be even more beautiful. I practiced my poor Russian and learned even better to read cyrillic letters. Not many people speak English or German, which for me personally is good, because I'm forced to make myself understood, trying to speak Russian. Travelling in winter is sometimes hard; dark, cold weather with freezing fingers and toes. Every season has it's charm and I enjoyed my stay very much. If you make an effort, people are very kind and helpful. I look forward to going again.
Again, thank you for making it possible.
Good health to all of you and the best in year 2004!

regards

Alex, Sweden
