Order dinner to go from Mendys or Taki Da - spend the night in Kiev (like the Kosher Hotel by the litvish community)

Traffic in kiev on friday mornings can be a nightmare but you can check out Babi Yar etc take some lunch to go from the above mentioned places and hit the road to Medzhybush before midday. The way should take less than 5 hours with a decent driver (shkia is around 9pm)

Motzash or sunday morning you can head out to berdichev, breslov, uman - KBP is 2 hours from uman (you can stop in kiev for dinner on the way out, but again getting in and out of kiev can take an extra hour)

Let me know if you need any contact info for Medzhbuzh/Kiev/Uman drivers, hotels etc.

They can stop in Fastov and Skvir as well on the way back from Uman to KBP.

I hear that the restaurant at the Jewish center in Podol is far better and cheaper than Mendy's.
Barditchiv is right on the way from Kiev to Medzibush and it's about 2 hours out of the way from Medzibush to Uman especially with the bad roads nowadays.

AFAIK you must pass through Berditchev when going back from Medzibuzh to Uman. Kiev, BErditchev and Uman are a triangle and Medzibuzh is a tangent off the berditchev point of the triangle, further west.

Seems that my Berditchiv based drivers were biased to their hometown and always took me back there before Uman. Thanks for the map.

Just to update.
Booked flight this morning
Flight was diverted to KBP (original destination was IEV)
As suave suggested i called Podol (Taki Da)and had them prepare Sandwichs (3 for $24)which we picked up on way.
It's pouring here and the roads are terrible, just arrived at R' YDB Vilenick, heading to Tronnabil and then Uman
