Kiev, Ukraine Oct. 2008

A few months back, we tried to get to Ukraine, but that fell through as we had arrived late in Paris and missed the flight.

So now we are going to try to do this again starting tomorrow via Amsterdam as the flights out of Paris are quite full. Coming back will be interesting as well since we have to go either through Frankfurt, Germany (FRA) with Lufthansa or via Munich, Germany (MUC) then to London and then to Houston on British Airways (BA).

Only two from the original three will make the attempt this time around.

Looking at, we noticed that there is actually no street maps of Kiev available. Last time this happened was when I was looking at map information for Tel Aviv, Israel.

A possible trip to Chihuahua, Mexico (CUU)

I was going to see my friend Alexis who was in Chihuahua, Mexico (CUU) for a meeting. I had decided it was not possible as the flight would arrive back in Houston at 9:02a this morning giving me no time to get to work ontime.

Well, it rained like crazy last night and when I got to work a friend told me that the outbound flight was actually canceled. So I would not have been able to go anyways.

I'll have to plan on doing CUU at another time.
