the next few days...

Not much has been going on the past few days, although starting tomorrow (Saturday) things are going to get pretty hectic.

Tomorrow evening, B, N, and A are flying in from the UK.

Sunday evening, the four of us are taking the train to Dnepropetrovsk, where our friend D lives. (From what I gather, Dnepropetrovsk is an industrial sort of place where no one in their right mind would go while on vacation. D has written a little about the absurdity of five foreigners being in Dnepropetrovsk at one time on his blog, which you should totally read.) After taking the overnight train into Dnepr, we'll spend one night and two days there, taking the overnight train back into Kiev on Tuesday night, rolling into Kiev at some ungodly hour like 6am on Wednesday.

We don’t really have much in terms of specific plans for how to entertain ourselves in Kiev during the rest of the week, but having traveled with these folks before, I know we’ll be able to amuse ourselves with no problems. On Friday, assuming all goes as planned, we’ll be off to Pripyat and Chernobyl for some pleasant romping through radiation.

Then bright and early Sunday morning (actually, probably not bright at all…) I’ll be boarding a plane for the USA :-(

I don’t know how busy I’ll be whilst the Desolation Travel crew are together, and I may or may not have time to blog about our adventures on a daily basis. No worries, though, posts about our adventures will totally go online as soon as possible.
