Don
Cherkassy Oblast
The country side is beautiful, I live in the Willamette valley, in Oregon USA, as a farmer, i'd move to this place if I could. If you plan to drive yourself here, buy good maps, or learn to speak and spell Russian, the roadsigns are few and far between, I never got lost, but I know a little Russian. The people here are the friendliest I met in all of Ukraine, and don't bypass Uman, Sophia park is a must see, it's amazing. Enjoy
