2000 Diaries

In 2000 we combined some nice tours, especially a Spring Break to Istanbul, with a most unusual project: rebuilding our own flat in Kyiv. The flat turned out to be a dream come true as we could afford hand labor, at Ukrainian prices, to beautifully restore our turn-of-the-century place. (Thanks to Lena our designer, Mike our contractor and his whole crew.)
