We're treading very carefully, as apparently we can only load pictures at this exact time of the day. And if we tiptoe, it will work. You can't be too careful with these delicate electronic processes. David is standing on one leg, facing east and holding his nose, so we hope for success.
We just ate another delicious lunch prepared by Inna, our cook. (Who looks like she is about 18 and not too hard on the eyes). Potato & corn soup, some kind of barley rice dish with pork and Korean carrot salad. Man oh man.
We had a nice visit this morning with Melanie. She was dressed in a beautiful red sweater with white tights. Her group was on its way outside so we bundled her up and went along. It was funny how this one poor caregiver was herding the babies right and left. Perhaps a horse or a sheep dog would have helped. David and I did our part, and have learned most of the babies' names. One of the little girls is being adopted by a family from Spain. They don't speak English, and my Spanish is rudimentary at best, so we communicate with nods and smiles.
This afternoon, Karim, our driver, is taking us to the bazaar before our afternoon visit. Should be interesting! Aida, our interpreter, was called to Almaty to work, so we are on our own. His English is about as good as my Russian. But he is very friendly and eager to please.
Last night we watched an episode of the Andy Griffith Show, which made us feel a little comfort of home. Now we have an Eagles CD running in the background. All in all, it's a quiet life we're leading here. We're safe, comfortable and happy! We have a peaceful, easy feeling.... now, cross your fingers that this entry will load!
