However, buying one in Ukraine drove my American friend into deep frustration. At the Kyiv Main Railway Station, cashiers and employees at the information desk do not know a word of English. Buying a ticket on the Internet is possible… but only if you speak Ukrainian.
Very little time is left before Euro 2012, the event that everyone in Ukraine expects anxiously.
The general condition of unpreparedness is simply amazing. The only hope that the event will ever take off falls in line with an old Ukrainian proverb: It takes a long time for Ukrainians to harness, but they ride very fast.
