Congratulations, I have arrived.

OK, so I'm not Silvia Night. A little bit of me would quite like to be though.

Initial impressions of Kiev: Efficient airport, sunny blue skies, warm weather. I think I'll stay for a couple of days.

The first thing the taxi Uber driver said to me as we drove away from the airport was: "The traffic in the city will be chaos because of this, you know, Eurovision." "Ah yes, that," said I. "Nice weather you have here."

Next thing I noticed was a chain of petrol stations called Wog. If only they knew (or maybe they do?).

So far so good, and laissez briller le soleil.
