In the previous post, I wrote about my Uncle Steve. Steve has one son, my cousin, Nathan. Nathan is an Auburn grad and the only other member of our family that played in the Auburn Band.

Nathan is currently in the Peace Corps and living in the town of Zin’kiv in the Ukraine. (See map of the Ukraine above.) There isn’t much on the Internet about the town of Zin’kiv (well, not in English anyway). The city has just over 10,000 people. It was also part of the northern trade route between western Ukraine and Moscow. The only other thing I know is something Nathan told me. Apparently, people in that part of the world find it funny that Americans add anything (e.g. orange juice) to vodka.

If anybody wants to add some facts about Zin’kiv, I would be happy to hear them.
