Sunflower Dreams & My Face on Page 5

Ukraine is the land of sunflowers, and I was waiting with great anticipation for my chance to run around a field o’ sunflowers. It did not disappoint.

Acres and acres of beauty

Sunflowers are tall!! I was literally looking up the whole time.

I also got coverage in a local Sumy newspaper this week. The information came from the press conference that was held a few weeks ago, which I posted about previously. But, I still love printed newspapers, and I still get excited about appearing in print.

Excited…and sweaty. Ukrainian summer!

      Thanks, Robin! I miss you and the OIE gang, too! The rumors of Ukrainian chocolate are true – I never used to eat chocolate…and now it is a daily occurrence. Delicious, or in Russian, вкусный.
