Wednesday morning we left for Askania Nova.
On our way out of town a flash of colour caught me eye and I glanced sideways at two women who were walking along the sidewalk. Of course, right then the car hit a hole in the road.
"Watch the road, not the women!"
"My dear, you know I only look at other women to remind myself how beautiful you are and how lucky I am to be married to you".
She replied in Russian. I didn't catch it all but it may have had something to do with romance and travel.
An hour later we are stopped at a light in Krivii Rih. There is a stunning drop-dead gorgeous blonde on the crosswalk, tight white dress, hemline and neckline threatening to meet in the middle. I closed my eyes.
"I am not looking. I will not look".
"Oh, go ahead and look at her. She will never look at you".
