Difference: Kiev is so Tiny Compared to Moscow…

I was up early and running around Kiev with early birds. It was a good thing that I started early to get my work done. It has started to rain and does not seem likely to let up for many hours. I was going to take pictures this afternoon but we will wait and see what the weather does…

I stopped at McDonald’s and got my morning cup of coffee, Americana style of course! Something that I noticed today at McDonald’s is that people in Kiev were holding the doors for other people, so that the door would not smack them in the face. Then I took notice that people were looking back over their shoulders to see if anyone would be hit by a swinging door. Now this is in direct contrast to what I see in Moscow. In Moscow people will just let the door swing and break your nose if you are not careful and holding a door just does not happen…

There is a lot of differences in Kiev and Moscow but the biggest difference is size. Kiev seems so small and easy to transverse. The metro is tiny and very easy to understand. You can literally walk across town in Kiev and Sveta and I have done just that at times…

Kiev is a totally different world than Moscow. It is like the difference between Kansas City and New York. Both big cities but New York is just plain huge. Example is that in Kiev I can be walking around the center of Kiev in less than 20 minutes by metro and in Moscow it would take two hours to get to the center of the city. I am the same distance (as the crow flies) from Kiev as I live in Moscow. But Moscow is just such a massive vast city that trying to transverse it takes hours because of so much humanity to wade through…

I realized just a few minutes ago that I forgot to take my medication this morning. So after I started to have a few problems it came back to me that I had not taken my long acting nitro pill. That is what happens when I do not keep on a scheduled and being in a strange country and in a hotel room messes up my pattern a lot. But now I am back on track and have everything caught back up as of this morning. I took my pills even though late and will adjust my evening pills for the time difference…

I was also able to swing by the train terminal and purchase my return ticket to Moscow. So I officially leave on the 11th of August and will be back home on the 12th…

It looks like I will just take it easy for the rest of the day and with all the rain it looks like a good day to read a book…
