I'm at a loss for why Ukraine already has longer days than Maryland, and it's not even the summer solstice yet.
During the winter, the days are EXTREMELY short, and there is not much sun. If there's any sunshine in the day, it's hidden behind the clouds.
To give you an idea of how little sunshine I've expected here, I'll tell you how much sunscreen I packed: 0.85 ounces, all in sample size packets. My roommate and I will use it tomorrow at the church picnic in Obolon.
