*** In August/September 1990 i traveled to Chernovtsy, Ukraine in the wonderful company of Viktoria Yazdani, Ruhiyyih Tabibzadegan, Roger Lee and Diane Koehler.  After our return to Canada, Roger composed and performed a memorable song about a young girl who had taken him and i to a cooperative ("private") restaurant where she treated us to coffee.  Please Click the following link to listen (or Right-Click to download) the song Roger affectionately calls "Benevolence."
