Stuff About Me:

About me: what do you want to know?? I've always had an interest in history, graduated with BA in History, and when younger worked towards PhD in History. I was especially interested in the history of the region my grandparents came from, Zakarpattia.  After the breakup of the Soviet Union, I was able to contact relatives there, and have been communicating through letters and by Skype. Last summer I was able to travel and stay with my cousins there, and experience Rusyn/Ukrainian lifestyle. I learned that I had more relatives there than I had imagined. Among friends and relatives I've met in Zakarpattia are: SBU officers, Border Guards, doctors and nurses, teachers, priests and seminarians, bus drivers, artists, businessmen, shopkeepers, and many other people of all occupations. I've kept in regular contact with them, and through them I have access to recources, opportunities, and experiences unavailable to the ordinary tourist.
