Picture + 100 Words: Kiev’s Independence Square
There’s quite a raucous going on in my husband’s home country Ukraine. No, it’s not 2005 again (the year of Ukraine’s Orange Revolution). But boy does it feel similar. I don’t want to make light of the protests, but I do have one question for Ukrainians: why are you guys always protesting in winter? I’ve been to Ukraine twice—once in January 2008 and once in summer 2010. Winter in Ukraine? It’s brutal. As is evidenced by this photo of Kiev’s Independence Square (where the protests are currently taking place). My vote would always be for a summer Ukrainian protest.
