4th email from Julie

Sunday  20-Jun

Just got out of a 2 1/2 hour church service - all in Russian! Believe it or not, I was able to understand some of it - we did have an interpreter.

We had breakfast at the church...ham, cheese, tomatoes, cukes, juice and coffee...lunch was better...we had rice and beef, tomatoes with mayo and cheese, cukes with dill and sugar water, mushrooms with cukes, eggs and mayo and blintzes for dessert...they also gave us these beautiful handcrafted pottery.

Got to bed last night about 10:30 and up at 6:30 this morning. We will be leaving to catch the train at about 6:00 tonight and will get to our destination at about 9:00 tomorrow morning and then through immigration/customs which they are telling us will be about 5-6 is a bit unrestful right now. They are talking about us having to walk across the border to get to Slovakia because the people who are coming to pick us up cannot get over the border.

We did a little touring yesterday but I had to go back early with two other people because it was really tough on our knees.

See you in 7 days.
