Our First Week in Kiev


So we thought we would write a few posts about our initial experiences here in Kiev since we've been here for a week now. Since I'm (Garrett) a weather kind of guy I'll write about that.

For the most part the temperature has been around -10 Celsius during the day and down to -20 at night. Although now it is warmer and is closer to 0 Celsius. It's generally cloudy, although we had one day of clear skies and sunshine. Usually it snows a little bit each day which is cool!!

The clouds seem to generally move from west to east and our windows face to the south which means when the sun is out we get lots of sunshine flooding through our flat's windows! Of course I've only been here for a week so it could all change...

did you really just tell us that it is -# CELCIUS??? And people complain about it being cold here. Psht. They don't know what Cold means :) Glad there are so many small things to be thankful for! Your apartment sounds pleasant. Say hello to Kristen from me!

Do you have heat? I was wondering since Russia was refusing to use the piplelines through the Ukraine.
