I loved this conversation. Dr. Wieda highlights so many of the things that I enjoy learning and hearing about in places I have not yet visited. She is so knowledgeable and the aspects of Ukraine that she covers are so interesting; I cannot wait to visit. Definitely a great time.
This was a wonderful introduction to Ukraine; geography, history, culture, specific sites, current political challenges. The material was very well organized, presented clearly by someone who has an understanding of the country that is both broad and deep. I'll be looking for more material on Ukrainian history and culture; and now, I really hope to visit within the year.

I came away with a much better understanding of the Ukraine. Dr, Wieda not only knows her material but has the gift of presenting it in a way which is easy for people to grasp.
