On the way home

We're back in the capital after a quick and uneventful train ride.  We're back in the same apartment we stayed in our first night in country, so things are looking comfortingly familiar.

Here is a shot of the difficult parting at the last visit with Julia before we left.

In one of our last walks around the local city it was snowing heavily on Saturday afternoon.  Saturday is the day local brides get their pictures taken in the local parks.  Even when it is freezing out!

From Adoption Trip 1

This spot kept reminding us of the scene in "Mary Poppins" where they all hop into the chalk paintings in the park.

This footbridge is a popular place for wedding shots, when it is not covered with ice that is.

The strangest thing was watching brides smoking and spitting while waiting for their pictures.  Interesting!

So tomorrow we make a quick stop by the US embassy to sign some papers and then first thing Tuesday we fly for home.  America - here we come!
