One Step Closer
We are now in Kharkov. We arrived here Monday morning. The apartment is very nice and we are close to everything we need, even a Wi-Fi cafe. YEAH!!!
We finished submitting all the passport information and now we play the waiting game. Our lawyer thinks we will have them Thursday or Friday. She left for Kiev today. We ate at McDonald's yesterday so Garrett was excited to "Finally eat some American food". He has been a real trooper through all this. This is a picture of Garrett and Karina by the McDonald's slide. The girls like dad's Big Mac more than the McNuggets. It cost close to what it does in the US to eat there. We spent 115rph which is a bit more than $20.
We will try and update things daily as long as the laptop battery will last in the Wi-Fi cafe. Right now our plans are to return on 9/19. We will leave Kiev at 6:30 am and arrive in SLC sometime around 9 pm the same day. We had to forget about our old tickets for the return on 9/13 and purchase new ones since the fees to change would be more than the new ones. This time we go through Paris to Cincinnati then to SLC.
We will update more tomorrow. Please leave some comments. We sure enjoy hearing from everyone. See you in 8 more days.
