One of many stray, sad cats sleeping in the window sill of the stairway window in our building.

I walked about 3 to 4 days a week with these girls.

Russian Orthodox Cross

Russian Orthodox Priest talking to a Russian Lady at the Monastery

Tatyana and me. She is the "Director" of the School, which is the same as an administrator or principal.
I'm filling up my cup with the water. They say it Holy Water. It is VERY cold and everyone fills up their bottles and drinks it. Tastes like regular tap water to me. But at least we didn't have to BOIL it for 10 minutes!
Holy Water well inside this building

Students and me in the Monastery
