Longer Days!

I'm at a loss for why Ukraine already has longer days than Maryland, and it's not even the summer solstice yet.

Kiev, Ukraine
Sunrise: 5:02am
Sunset: 8:48pm

Crumpton, MD
Sunrise: 5:46am
Sunset: 8:15pm

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.
