Kyiv, Ukraine - Early Holidays?

During the recent Euro 2012 Football Championships in Ukraine, it was so easy to drive in and out of Kyiv city centre. Many local people took the opportunity to escape from the crowds and decided to visit their country houses/dachas and many went further on overseas holidays.
Since the end of Euro 2012 Kyiv city centre remains somewhat empty. It is so EASY to drive around the city these days at any time of the day.
Holidays have come early this year. We usually see a deserted city centre during the month of August each year. But maybe Euro 2012 put people in a very early holiday mood.
The majority of business people are already into the holiday mood which is easily identified through the complete lack of wanting to make any decisions. ''Let's wait until September'', is the normal phrase you will hear these days.
However, maybe we will witness an ever longer holiday mindset this year due to the pending Ukraine Parliament elections due on 28th October 2012. I'm sure people will use this event as yet another reason to delay any major decisions until they can see what will happen on the political front.

So my friends.......enjoy the very long summer.
