what I’m reading

12 05 2010

Recently I’ve been reading, “From Nyet to Da: Understanding the New Russia.” Though I’m going to Ukraine, its history is so wrapped up and overlapped with that of Russia that this book is quite relevant. Russia, Ukraine’s northerly and easterly neighbor, spans fourteen time zones–a huge country! Perhaps that explains this Russian proverb, the epigram at the beginning of a section of Russian caution and conservatism:

“The slower you go, the further you’ll get.”
