Thank you, Pat...

You do not want to get 'seek' via a woman you will never be with...

Getting the medical certificate together can be fun ...

NICE!!!

look for the large outdoor "flea markets"
they're always worth a look
be prepared to haggle

 I've got too much work to do to before I can take a vacation. You're going to have to have fun without me. :(

Zaporizhia is south of Kyiv and is a very dirty industrial town of around 3/4 million people
Zhytomyr is west of Kyiv and a fairly clean university town of around 1/4 million people with large dairy processing facility.

Not sure which place Pat was talking about possibly visiting.

I do not  remember anything redeeming about Zaptown.   The highlight of the trip was walk on the hydroelectric dam.  The Cossack area perhaps could have been interesting except it rained.   The longest, straightest, and ugliest main avenue in any city I visited in the FSU.  To this add the not so faint odors of factory emissions, causing me concern about what I could be breathing.

you were at the dam but didn't go to the Khortytsia reserve?
the whole Dnepr watershed is AMAZING one of the best river systems in the world IMHO...

That is what I referred to as the Cossack Island.  Impressive, but not even Central Park or Stanley Park is much fun in the rain.

The Zap UW with me was one of my worse dating experiences.  I am sure she said the same about me. She snored louder than any man (evidently the result of a bad auto accident many years ago).

it would totally suck being there in the rain (and mud!)
but spectacular on a warm sunny day...

the Dnepr waterways are just amazing
too bad it's such a hassle owning a boat in Ukraine

When in Dnipro (the new name, and much easier to pronounce), I walked to the river 2-3 times.  The string of dams have made the river wide and slow, perfect  for barges of coal and sand as expected.  Unexpected were the passenger boats, resembling passenger traffic on the Congo, except people are white and not sardined.   

In the late afternoon I watched a couple of passenger ferries returning weary citizens who had harvested their gardens at dachas up and down the river.  I laughingly equated it to watching the fishing boats in America return from the sea to their harbors.  Instead of catches of mahimahi, tuna, blues or the rare huge marlin laid out on the dock,  it was a parade of Slavs carrying bags of potatoes, buckets of tomatoes, a monster cabbage, and baskets of fruits.   Evidently these citizens of Dnipro did not need or could not afford a car, following  tradition from the steamship era.    It was certainly a scene uncommon to America.

Zapo is not only a dirty industrial city but there are four nuclear reactors nearby.
Exactly the type of reactors that could make a Tchernobyl V2.0This is one of my fear for the country

Zaporizhia NPP has SIX reactors!!!

six reactors all in a row...
PLUS spent fuel processing...

wind currents are circular there
heads North and to the East

if I were Ukraine, I would "mine" each reactor
and spent fuel processing

and let Russia know...

Mutually Assured Destruction with 6+ Chernobil's going off at once
in case of invasion

maybe they're only bluffing
or maybe not...

they're the only nuclear weapons Ukraine has to use as a deterrent

I ran there saturday, and a AN2 dropped six paratroopers who landed in the Dniepr. I probably had some photos.

May be an AN-26?

Hi MSB
It was definitively an AN2. A biplane with one motor in front. This type is very popular to drop paratroopers. It allows a very low speed, which is exactly what is wanted for the purpose.

Msb, if you have time go to Kiev to the aviation museum. They have an amazing collection of USSR planes. I will post a photo here of tha AN2. It's quite a popular plane there. The A26 is two motors, faster, an airliner.
