We went to help at the dascha. This is Sister Vera's neighbor, Babushka Katia. She has a lovely garden and shared the sweetest strawberries with us. We enjoyed our visit to her humble home.
There was a particularly windy day recently. We saw branches from trees all over the place.
Happy Birthday to Elder A at this Japanese Restaurant. Even though we got off the bus at the wrong stop (and had to walk in the rain) we had a nice lunch.
We almost cleaned our plates!
This is the American Embassy in Astana. We were able to attend the picnic there.
There are quite a few Americans in Astana
Lots of goodies to share
Our friends, the Morris' who have now moved back to the US
