The Big Appointment
We heard that it is good luck to touch the bug on this statue, so of course, I had to do it!

Then, we had the rest of the day to explore. We found out that their exchange rate is $1 US dollar to their $8. Prices were like $200 for a nesting doll, but that is really only about $25.
Travis made a friend.
McDonald's has some big competition here - a place called "McFoxy"!
There aren't many crosswalks signals here. Pedestrians just walk out right in front of speeding cars and the cars stop for them. Cars also drive and park on the sidewalk.
We found our way to the grocery store. No one spoke Engish and nothing was written in English, so it was quite an adventure. I bought something I thought was milk, but when I tasted it, well, I'm not sure what it really was, but it was really sour.
I also thought I was buying a chocolate crossiant, but it turned out to have black olives in it. Yuck! Any apple cost $4.39, but then I remembered that was really only 54 cents. They weigh and price the fruit before you take it up to the cashier.
