So the VP is gone

My role was, again, site officer for a visit to the Holodomor memorial. VP and Mrs. Cheney and President and Mrs. Yushchenko.

I haven't found anything online yet, but I suspect the pictures will look alot like this, but sunnier.

Besides the visit, this has been happening, which has kept me busy (in addition to the VP visit prep) in my first full week in the political section.

Update: A picture from my site made it onto the NY Times website.

Wonder if it was in the print edition, too.

Presumably things went well and mourning occured at satisfactory rates. Very well done. And congrats on the shift to the political side of things.

Do you have any tips/warnings about Kiev? I'm thinking about working out there a little bit with J. Suvor - we don't plan to drive anywhere so that's one less opportunity for the fuzz to mess with us. I'm sure they'll think of something if they're determined, though.

So any obvious things that your blog may not reveal? Poisonous rats? Raging gangs of street toughs? Flood plains to avoid?

Suvor will take good care of you. He pretty much runs this place.

But the raging gangs of poisonous rats pretty much control the flood plain, so stay away from that.
