WE MADE IT!!!....

We're here. The 7 hour flight to Amsterdam was actually nice and comfortable if you can believe it. We flew Northwest/KLM and the service, food, movie, etc. was great. The flight from Amsterdam to Kiev was not so great. Smaller plane, smaller seats, hot...but it was only 2 and a half hours long so it was bearable. We used the VIP service at the Kiev airport and it is so worth it!! We were out of the airport in 15 minutes but would have been out of there in 5 minutes if we hadn't had to wait for our luggage to get off the plane. The lines were long but because we use the VIP we were able to get right past all the lines. I would use it again in a heart beat!! The apartment is about 30 minutes from the airport and is right in the middle of everything and right by the NAC. The apartment is very nice and very clean.

Now some bad news...our appt. at the NAC was canceled today (Mon.) and so we aren't happy about that as we have our daughter home back in the States and, obviously, want as few delays as possible so we're not off to a great start. But I know we have to expect the unexpected but it's hard when our 3 year old is at home waiting for us. We don't know when our appt. will be but are hoping it will be Tues.

We will post some pictures as soon as we can and, also, let you know when we have our appointment.

Take care,
Shannon and Dave

Shannon & Dave, I am so sorry to hear about your cancellation! Hopefully this is just a rocky start to a smooth journey. Take my advice and get your souvenirs now, you may not have time when you get back to Kiev, particularly when you are trying to so hard to get back home to your little girl! Keeping you in my thoughts! - Jennifer Daniels
