There are dozens of eureka moments and just as many heartbreak ones. In the end, it is like one of those 1,000-piece puzzles with the lovely pastoral scene on the box that only the very determined complete.
My betting, though, is that the multiple pieces that represent the Kyiv Post/East Europe Foundation’s inaugural Tiger Conference puzzle will mesh fine. Friends note that I often flirt with lady optimism, and on occasion it is an unrequited affair.
But – though the proof will be in the pudding – this one had mojo from the start. You should book reservations today. The conference begins on Nov. 26 with a VIP reception and reconvenes early Nov. 27 for the full day. Both events are at the Fairmont Grand Hotel near the Dnipro River in Kyiv’s Podil neighborhood.
