Don't Forget the Tip!

We went out for dinner a couple of weeks ago at a really nice pizza restaurant. It was a somewhat complicated experience since our waitress didn't speak English but at least the restaurant had an English menu we could look through. After the meal she brought us our bill in this little glass. So, I followed suit and put my money in the glass as well. We were worried about whether or not we'd get our change because it's really hit-or-miss here, but we did. Before we left I made sure to leave her a the cup of course :)

*(Tipping is a relatively new thing in Ukraine. From what we've heard the recommended amount is 10% but if they know you're American, they'll often expect more.)

very interesting cultural experience - in some places, I heard they take tips as an insult or something like that
