Things we are thankful for

Here we are, in the capital of an Eastern European country that most of you know by name.  We have much to be thankful for tonight.
a) We arrived safely
b) So did our luggage!
c) The apartment our facilitator arranged for our first few nights here is simply gorgeous
d) The apartment even has Internet connectivity, so we don't have to sit in a McDonald's or Internet cafe to post this.

We are so tired from traveling for a day that we are going to collapse right here.

The place even has a living room:

and kitchen:

So for tonight we are being spoiled and we are grateful. Stay tuned for more stories from adoption trip, part 1.

For those who want to see more of the arrival pictures, see the full album here.   We'll add more pictures here as we take them, and eventually add captions etc. but if you want to see things as they happen, check it out.
