You're reading: After travels abroad, home is not so sweet

It is not only because of the end of vacation and the need to return to work. It is about the country. 

The sad feeling starts as you travel the broken road from the airport (yes, not all of us live in the city centre) and the talkative taxi driver asks you how things are “there.” Then, he tells how he has to work extra hours and how his girlfriend juggles two jobs to pay for her apartment while raising her daughter. “The prices just go up and the salaries do not move,” he says. 

If you live in the country without going abroad for awhile, you stop noticing all that is wrong with it. But when you go out and see how people live, you see things in Ukraine with a broader perspective.
