Ok, I know I talk alot about food here. But I'm telling you that you never realize how important the small things are that we have readily available in America then you might start to be able to understand how it would be to live in a place where you just don't have choices.
Now the good stuff. Yesterday for breakfast we asked in Russian for eggs and we were rewarded with the most delicious omlette. We had fresh bread, big slices of ham, the omlette, and cheese. I had instant coffee and Sharon had tea. It was delicious. Today we had grits and a fried chicken pattie for breakfast. Good stuff.
We walked several miles today and checked out all of the stores. None of the people taking money have calculators. They all use an abbacus (sp?). No kidding. We lost another light bulb in the bathroom. We are down to one. But, that is a good thing in the bathroom.
The apt is pretty cold. We use a small electrical floor heater. It went out last night and we freaked out. I beat on it and revived. Let me tell you it is the one thing we will not be without. We may have to buy another one for the apt. Today's temp was in the teens. But, the sun was shining part of the day.
Choco's husband - what's is going to cost me for that used helmut? As soon as I get back I plan on a big ride. Thanks for thinking of me.
