Where we live in Ukraine

It is hard to explain to folks who haven't been here about roads and villages and such.  These pictures are from Google Maps and if you plug Zhovti Vody, Dnipropetrovs'ka, Ukraine into Google Maps, you can get much bigger pictures than these.  But these will at least help orient you on the larger map.

Our house.  From this picture you should be able to locate us on the larger map

  1. Google Earth maps are fantastic. After years of navigating by topographical maps these just blow me away.

    1. I just wish they would update the satellite photos periodically. For that, you have to pay money, I guess.
