In June, the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship will turn Ukraine the center of the sporting life of Europe. Thousands of football fans will come to root for their favorite teams and spend some time in the country. We present 54 signs that you’ve spent too much time in Ukraine and start to behave like a Ukrainian.

1. You put dill on everything. We mean EVERYTHING.
2. You’re not scared of the stray dogs.
3. You know how to shout at taxi-drivers to get a better price.
4. You have two SIM cards.
5. Cyrillic doesn’t confuse you.
6. You understand that if you put your girlfriend’s handbag on the table or (god forbid) the floor – she will probably leave you.

7. You have perfected your own borsch recipe.
8. You can pronounce Dnipropetrovsk without having a seizure.

    Some of those are very cute! However, many are in Moscow as well…like the sunflower seeds, the “pajowlusta” when someone says thanks. The hot girls clunking around in their high heels, the stray yet brilliant stray dogs….and the dill on everything (fresh of course)
