The wonders of the internet! I noticed this in the side bar of the blog yesterday:
Where is Oblast? I wondered. Ever the Kurious Kat, I scampered over to Google to find out.
A little more information:
Welcome, visitor from Poltava Oblast! Talk to us! Tell us what it is like where you are. How are you affected by the turmoil in the southeastern part of your country? Were you affected by the Chernobyl disaster? (Now you know the extent of American knowledge of Ukraine.) How did you find this blog? What is your favorite color? Sorry, got a little carried away there...
