The turmoil in the Ukraine is taking center stage in the world’s attention. I’d be neglectful if I didn’t point you over to Le Sabot Post-Moderne for an eye-witness perspective on the protests and political upheaval, most of it centered in Kiev, the nation’s capital. Le Sabot’s been on my blogroll for a while, but if you’ve never read it, now’s the time. Blogger Discoshaman, his wife the Duchess (who writes TulipGirl), and their four boys live as missionaries in Kiev. I think you’ll learn a lot from reading their blogs right now.
