Thank you to those of you who sent me emails yesterday concerned with the situation in Ukraine --- and the fact that I'm living here.

All I have to say is this:

It's all good.

So far, nothing seems out of the ordinary in Kiev. The next snow wave is coming in, so people are naturally staying indoors more and more. That said, we don't have the martial law imposed here. There will not be any impact on civil liberties or anything of the sort. I'm sure that's NOT the case in cities that are in a bit more conflict in both the East and down near the Black Sea, but as far as the capital city, all is fine and dandy here.

I mean, the current president here has an approval rating of something like 8%, and while he decided to "only" impose martial law for 30 days, who knows how it might play out in the coming months with elections right around the corner. My Russian is good enough to order in restaurants and make a small bit of chit-chat. I'm glad it's not good enough to understand a word on the news channels.

But, we've known they're completely fake news for a while, haven't we?

The hysteria is certainly overblown by the Western media.

Anyways, the latest podcast goes into details about it from the boots on the ground.

In today's Daily Trouble, Kyle explains the situation he recently had while traveling in Eastern Europe. The sad reality is that if airlines out here want to break into the Western market (which is good for everyone), they are going to need to step their game up.

In the latest episode of Troublesome Radio (now on YouTube!), I dive into some quick thoughts on Belgrade, Serbia.

I spent 15 days in Serbia recently, and while I enjoyed my time, I just don't think the Balkans mesh with me as well as other places such as Ukraine, Poland, etc. Something about the region just doesn't click with my personality.

To hear some of the crazy Serbian stories, I'd suggest you tune in to this podcast episode with my friend Papi Rico:

https://datingabroad.net/episode071/

The people of Belgrade, and Serbia has a whole, are fantastic and great folks. Very warm and welcoming, and no, they don't hate Americans (I do mention in the video which political affiliation they prefer you to have...).

Finally, Belgrade and Serbia as a whole are quite affordable.
