On a minor sidenote to my trip, right after landing at the airport in Odessa a few days ago, I realized I had accidentally left my camel hair sports jacket in the wardrobe of my hotel room in Kiev.
I was disappointed, and I had originally bemoaned that I wouldn't get it back. But then I reconsidered.
I emailed the staff at the Kiev JDC office and asked if they could make arrangements to pick up the coat and give it to a client who needed it.
This afternoon, Diana at the JDC sent me a photo of that client, along with his appreciation.
I have never been more grateful to forget something.
