Today little Veeka discovered a trail mix fruit and nut bar supplied by Oma that found its way into my purse. Did she like that! Much better than that boring orphanage stuff she usually gets. She also tried lying on my tummy and pretending to be an airplane. That was pretty cool.
Afterwards Valentin and I went to an ice castle (a huge playground that looks like a Snow White castle - but all out of ice) where I slid down the ice slide. Wheee! Then we found a bookstore that has tri-lingual Russian-Kazakh-English children's books. Won't find that at Borders.
I am having a tough time loading AOL so if some of you don't hear from me, it's cuz that #%$^* AOL is acting up. Overseas service is not AOL's speciality. Would use my gmail account but I forgot the password!
