The past three days have been a flurry of activity. We raced to another region, named Poltava, three days in a row, which is about four hours round trip. When we went the first day, the office was closed! Ughh!!
Let me tell you, the road to Poltava is like swiss cheese.
They have delicious cherries they sell on the side of the road.
I tried to pet the cows, but they weren't interested!
My fabulous facilitator, Alex.
Squatty potties are so fun!
My friends, Jen and Wayne are adopting 3 kids from this region too! They went home though.
Francesca pieced the ear drums of many when it was time to ride in the "machina". Just imagine 10 fire alarms ringing in unison.
My friend, Kbac (K-vas). He's very fond of hot dogs. I named him after a popular drink here. It's kind of like soda, kind of like beer and it's kind of gross.
Anya's mom made stuffed cabbage! My favorite! Just like my grandma used to make!
The big day!! Getting dressed.
We decided to celebrate their homescoming by sitting in the dark. Yep, the power went out for most of the night!
This is the apartment I have been staying in.
Francesca has been doing well, but she was scared of the bunny at first! Victoria will not sleep, at all, nada.
We're hoping to be home sometime next week!
