I got into Ukraine late in the evening after 30 hours of travel and about 2 hours of sleep. I was looking forward to sleeping most of the day, but woke up early to a text from my translator: “School begins today. So if you can find a school by 9 AM, you’ll find Ukrainian children with flowers in their hair.”
