For those who posted about my health, I am feeling MUCH better today and only went through ONE packet of tiny pocket-sized tissue packets today :) But we did go buy a box too! We slept SO WELL last night and then got up to hot omlets this morning. Mike went back to bed for a while (he'll be up all night now). We have been so blessed by the family we are staying with. If they allow I will share their contact info with those traveling to Ukraine soon. It's a bed and breakfast type setup and they charge comparable to a rugged apartment with a springy bed, but instead have a beautiful home, real toilet paper (this is important;) )and a caring family around you!
Here's some pic's from the last week:
Our hotel room in Korosten:
Our regional facilitator, Natalia, and her husband, Artoym
The views from our car in either direction when we ran out of gas :)
FINALLY! Someone sold us a little gasoline :) they siphened it out of their tank for us!
One of our shopping trips- I think this was dinner when we had a late lunch one day :)
One of the MANY churches. They all have the bronze roof and are very ornate. When we were driving around sometimes there would be these TINY little homes that were all pretty dilapidated and then a huge ornate church. It was interesting. This one is in Korosten.
Some other things around Korosten
This is also in Korosten, but it was a 'market'. I don't know about you, but I don't want to have to go down that alley to buy food!
A public bus and an ambulance. There were a lot of different vehicles used as ambulances!
Picture this... it's 30 or less outside, it's snowing, and the 'place to be' is outside in this tent... I'll pass, thanks.
When we went downstairs on Saturday in Korosten only to find that the hotel restaurant was reserved for a wedding all day, this became our lunch and dinner :)
