It might be scaring to go out in the big world all by yourself. I know the airport alone can scare the hell out of some people.. Where to find the gate..?? What to do?? What if?? and a lot of other questions. When you come to a foreign country, how to find everything? What to say, what to do? Is crime really as bad as you've been told? Can you feel safe? I have worked as a professional DJ for several years (not the last 10 years) , been travelling all over the world, some times with some rather famous artists, some times all by myself, and even I am still some times in-secure. The first time I went to Estonia I was worrying about how to act, I had been told it was quite dangerous there... What a joke! It was a ball! Just take some precautions, I m sure you do it every day in US as well. I am sure you will succeed in your first travel outside US. Just leave your Hawaii shirt at home, and don't walk around with your cam around your neck... My best advise to you is to relax, and make sure you are at the airport in good time before your flight. I am taking my second trip to Estonia the 10th of february, and I just can't wait. Second trip in 4 weeks! Life is wonderful right now! I wish you the best Redman! Good luck, this will be a life experience for you, something to tell the grandchildren about!
Where've you been hidin' ma china, or where you locked into one of those heaps you flog mebbe? Try Japanese instead of Zjerman oops, British next time.
So how's life, the social one I mean? I just could not help wondering who's doing the cooking you referred to - Borsch? ;-)
Confidential Connections?..This marriage agency in owned by a guy named Stephen from New York runs out of the hotel Kharkov and has various offices in Odessa, Poltava,Kharkov ( head office ), Vinnitsa to name a few..I think about 7 branches in cities of Ukraine other than Kiev ( they are against Kiev girls because according to their policy these city girls are too spoilt and too materialistic to make good wifes for Western men ).
The anti-scam reports on this agency are mixed and it seems to lie in the grey area..nothing too good about it and nothing too bad.
The owner Stephen is now based in the country of Belize according to last info available.
The agency in Kharkov also owns a strip club where men are sent when there are no dates for the night so that will be fun on a boring night.
Some reports indicate that this agency sends letters to men by themselves from women who are there members without there knowledge but its unconfirmed.
Some services are pricey such as the accomodation..you can find your own apartment in Kharkov easily for $600 usd for a month or less so I suggest private accomodation arrangements rather than the Kharkov Hotel.
Translation services ( use of a translator person ) seem to be good value for money as well as airport pickup and return but you dont have to use there accomodation.
Conf Connections are a mixed bag and like any agency they can not guarantee 100% certainty to be scammer free..CAUTION, CARE AND PRE-INVESTIGATION AND CHECKS ON YOUR GIRL ARE ADVISED BEFORE TRAVEL...Michael Miunov's detective agency allrussian.com I think can provide a background check of your girl for about $120usd for most cities of Ukraine before you travel and operates by credit card payment using the US based clickbank.com I believe so it should be quite safe to use.
Take care and goodluck
Oh, these loooong summer-eve's, and honest, they forced me to drink that wine, really, true's bob your Honour.
Pity - I, as clearly demonstrated, was surprised to see him. Fata morgana I suppose, or at least related to some form of dehydration.
