Kristi and I finally made it on the Amazing Race. Of course it was not the one on TV that we love to watch and desire to do one day. We had our own here in Kiev. We started the morning early with a list of tasks to complete in order to be able to leave for home this weekend. We had the best assistance from our personal driver, interpreter and facilitator. We could not have done so well without them. They were so excited with us as we completed necessary tasks. We love our Ukraine team! We call them Team Nadia.
Pray for Nadia, she dealing with bronchitis. We have meds and she is feeling much better.
We spent the day yesterday site seeing around Kiev. Here are some photos.
The entrance to a new memorial for those who died of a government caused famine during 1932-1933. Over 4 million died of hunger. Amazing statue of a young girl holding 5 stalks of wheat. If anyone was found with wheat, they would have been arrested or punished worse. Even if wheat was on the ground it could not be picked up and taken. All was government property.
Our tour guide let Nadia light a candle and ring the bell in memory of those who died during the famine.
I found our house in Ukraine. It was built in the early 1900's
It was a private residence for many years. The roof is covered with all kinds of sea creatures, lions and various heads. I don't think Kristi would like to live in this house though.
We have enjoyed walking through the parks in the city. The leaves are changing colors.
Kristi's favorite place for a coffee.
Our apt building in Kiev.
