Many Ukrainians have a "dacha," a small warm-weather cottage in the country. If you are ever invited to a Ukrainian's dacha, you must absolutely say "yes!" Time at a dacha is time that Ukrainians treasure, and you will come away from it with wonderful memories and new close friends.
Be aware that many dachas are little more than tiny shacks. They might have running water, but they might not. Often, the bathroom is just an outhouse. So come prepared: water, hand-wipes, toilet paper. Also, bring food or drink with you as a gift to your hosts. Among my Ukrainian friends, a bottle of vodka is customary. But you may also bring wine, juice, chocolate, fruit, or something you cooked yourself. The hosts will probably have everything they need for a big spread--tableware, food, and plenty to drink. If you don't drink alcohol, make that clear to your hosts from the start. Usually, drinking is part of the outing, and may start much earlier in the day than Americans are used to. But you must at least be willing to eat! Most dachas have a large garden, and often many fruit trees as well. Together with the fresh produce, people often bring meat to grill for "shashlyk," sort of like a shish-kebab. If you're really lucky, you might get to meet the rabbit or chicken before you eat him. Sometimes Americans are bothered by the lack of hygeine at these functions. Yes, nobody is washing hands. And the cook may spit on your meat to moisten it (it isn't an insult to you!). But it's a very "back to the earth" kind of dirtiness, and I've never gotten sick from it.
Bring a camera if you have one. Ukrainians love to pose for pictures. They also will immediately want copies of all the pictures, so be sure to get them developed quickly and to share copies with everybody!
