While we were waiting for our visas to be processed, we spent some time with the humanitarian couple in the Ukraine, Elder and Sister Cullum. This is their third mission, after Laos and then to the temple in South Africa, so they have a lot of experience to learn from. They showed us around the city and we explored some on our own. It is a beautiful city.
This statue is in Independence Square. The city recently hosted the World Cup Soccer and there are still signs of that all around the city.
Interesting items at the tourist vendors.
