Last week may have been the worst week so far in Ukraine. A serious sickness over took me- I have been sick since Monday with some kind of wicked Ukrainian flu. Anyways, on New Years Eve I was still pretty out of it, but was still able to make it over to Dasha's house for an AMAZING meal! She made pretty much every single dish ever conceived of in Ukraine. It was amazingly delicious to say the least. After dinner, we went out to the town square and watched people shoot off fireworks and dance around the big Christmas tree. We were enjoying the atmosphere of drunk merry-makers until a couple rockets flew right by us, almost impaling Dasha's husband Ivan. That ended our night, I was pretty shook up- but all in all I had a great night. I felt very welcomed and at home at my counterparts house. Ukrainians know how to make you feel right at home.
