We could not resist getting a picture of them sleeping. After a long day they were so tired they went to bed fairly well. They were excited to catch the train the next day. We did not get the passports as planned on Thursday but we did on Friday afternoon. One problem, we could not get a ticket for the Friday 6 pm train so we will leave tomorrow morning for Kiev (Saturday 7am).
Our stay in Kharkov has been great. We enjoy the apartment. It is very nice and was only $60 US. More than worth the extra $10 versus our village accommodations. We ventured to a pizza place tonight. Very wimpy, no toppings, very little cheese or sauce, and as Garrett put it, “This taste nothing like pizza”! Well it was not that bad and to get three pizzas for 42rph - $8.40 US you can not complain too much. I will miss the good food prices.
We will visit the US Consulate on Monday to take care of visas and medical exams for the girls. We promised Garrett a trip to Independence Square for another meal at McDonalds. The girls are excited as well to have a hamburger since Papa’s was “Yum Yum”.
We will try and get pictures on the web in Kiev but the internet cafe we were at the first time had their own computers and did not allow jump drives. We have a Wi-Fi place here in Kharkov and it has been much nicer to work from my own laptop. Leah and I both went there and had some yummy desserts.
We better get some sleep since it is after Midnight and our driver will pick us up at 6:00 am. Keep leaving comments; we love to hear from all of you.
Best wishes and we will see you next week! Love Ya, Greg, Leah, Garrett, Karina, and Cassidee.
