How Nigel got home !!
As many know ... I went out to Ukraine early April with intent to do a quickie assignment of 3 weeks ...
After 4 months - I finally got home .....
First : Visa to enter Crimea was required from Russian Consul as Crimea had been taken from Ukraine into Russian administration.
Second : Consul has no directives to work with .... but visa is issued.
Third : Arrive Crimea - they are completely confused what to do ...
Fourth : Last days of visa - I cannot get replacement guy out ...
Fifth : I am now stuck without any way to travel through Russian controlled territory.
Sixth : It takes discussions with 6 international companies and interests over months to get my passage via ship to Istanbul ...
Seventh : I travel on ship to Istanbul and fly home !!
