“You Can Go Ahead of Me, If You’d Like”


I’m sorry, but when I see that the Ukrainean tourism board is pleading with the cruise companies to resume cruising in the Black Sea,  it’s hard to keep a straight face.  Their claims that the tourist areas of Odessa and the Crimea (I thought that was Russia’s now?) are absolutely safe (as of June 13th) are a little hard to believe. Will the passengers need helmets and flak jackets in addition to their lifejackets?
