No orphanage visit today, Sheila is under the weather and I feel something coming on as well....time for some Zicam! We did venture out today briefly, we thought we had lost our translation book...I felt completely lost without it, luckily it was hiding in one of our bags. We tried a different resteraunt today...they had a 20 page menu...after spending about 20 minutes trying to decifer the first page, a smiling partron came over and asked in very good english if we needed help with the menu...minor crisis averted, sort of...the patron left and the server, thought we ordered two of everything! Somehow she understood and we didn't get charged for both meals. I felt bad and tried to tip her...they don't seem to get the concept, but I just said Spasiba(thank you) and walked out...she was gonna take the tip whether she wanted it or not!!
Let's talk coffee today...some of you know my love for all things Caribou(or Starbucks in a pinch) there is nothing like that here(there were some coffee shops in Kiev) so I have been content with the very strong coffee they serve us at the hotel everyday...It's actually grown on me...the problem is the size...I'm going to have to stop ordering the larges! Sheila must be ordering right, because her cup of tea is always bigger than my coffee.
It's a good thing Sheila Brought sunblock!
We'll be back at the orphanage tomorrow and hope to get those photos we've been trying to get...it all depends on how sick we are....it's not the best place to spread germs and I would feel awful if we got the kids sick!!
