My Good Old Friends

I have not only traveled around Ukraine, I have also seen several of my good old friends. They
no longer all live in Lviv, but that's how life goes, even in Ukraine. Kyiv is the magnet, although some have resisted so far and promise to stay put. Some of them are happily married, some are waiting for an even happier event, adding to the current baby boom in Ukraine, others are working hard, or starting to think about their own business ventures. There are some enthusiasts, pro-ukrainian believers, there are some pessimists, that do not believe in this country's future, and finally there is the deserter - myself.


Overall, I would say that this trip has helped me to believe just a little bit more. Things are moving fast, money is coming in. Certainly the income gap is huge, mostly big population centers are benefiting from the economic growth. It's not even worth talking about Ricardo's 80/20 as far as resource management is concerned, but then again, there is probably hardly another proven way for a society to get rid of its ghosts...
