Language problems

(I’m in Kiev, Ukraine to do a project kick-off.)

My Ukrainian and Russian is not very good… to be more precise I can’t talk both at all. So how to get to a supermarket and buy some water, breakfast, cola and juice? Well… in a Kiev sub-urb asking doesn’t help much because people here talked as much English as I did Ukrainian/Russian. So after a couple of miserably failed attempts I had to come up with something else. I just followed some women with grocery bags. I hope they didn’t feel stalked….
