While we've been here in the Ukraine, the world celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Berlin wall's demise. What a monumental victory that was! In this picture we have Pat trying to push open a set of imposing gates... huge archways, black iron fences are everywhere here in Kiev.
We are still in a holding pattern. The doors of the orphanages are scheduled to open back up on November 23rd. Once the SDA opens back up, they'll issue us our paperwork and we will head toward Kotovsk, near the border of Moldova. We recently read online that Ukraine took the strongest actions against the swine flu of any European country, including closing of 4 of their borders.
