Tailwind in Ukraine

After 300km of straight roads fighting a headwind at 13km/h I reach the Azov Sea. The headwind slowly becomes a crosswind and eventually a feeble tailwind! Will it last until Rostov? I am 130km from the Russian border (Show on Google Maps) which I’ll probably cross in 2 days. I’ll try to find a hotel on the Ukrainian side tomorrow evening to get rid of my last Hryvnias (the local money) and try to spend the 500MB left on my Ukrainian SIM card… The mobile internet access (EDGE) in Ukraine has been fantastic, it is slow but it works almost everywhere, from the Carpathians to the middle of a field in the steppe. I hope I’ll find something similar in Russia.
