Traveling around Kiev

I answered the questions from yesterdays posts.  If you go to the bottom of the post and click on replys, you can see the questions I have answered.  By the way, 2nd hour is in trouble.

I tried russian caviar and I have to admit… is as bad as I thought it would be.

If the State Representative thing goes haywire, I have been offered the Presidency of Ukraine and this will be my new office. The sign is the entrance of the Presidents office.

The Soviets may not have known how to run a government, but they could sure build a monument.  I walked around telling everyone that we (the U.S.) whooped them in the Cold War.  An ode to all my old B-52 and B-1 buddies.  I am the little feller in the front.

Four very nice “Babushkas” in  front of the biggest Easter egg I have ever seen.  Desmond, “Babushka” is a respectful term for an older women.

I kept saying “come here, boy.”  But as you can see, the dog thought I was not the sharpest stick in the stack.  Then I remembered..The dog speaks Ukranian!  So I said, “Yak Spravy, little doggy” and we became the best of friends.

  1. Love being able to see what you do each day! Who is taking all the pictures of you? Did you learned “Will you take my picture” in Russian? 🙂

    • People from my group are taking my picture. At the Soviet memorial, I asked a ukranian soldier if he wanted o take a picture with me and he said. “NYET!” Guess he is a little bitter about losing the Cold War.

  2. We read chapters one and two of animal farm!! RJ says it was outstanding! 🙂 Julia would like to know when you are breaking out of prison?! Amanda would like you to find a Ukranian cat! (go figure) Skylar says have fun in Ukraine! Austin would like to know if you learned any more interesting words?? Have you played wiffle ball yet?? Written by Shelby!! Love Period Shist!!!!!!!!!!!

    • My new word is “deyakayu.” That is thank you. I have found the Ukranians don’t yell at you so much if you smile and say “thanks” to whatever is happening.

      I will look for a cat, but they seem like a pretty well educated country and don’t have cats.
