Saturday, June 24, 2006

It is Saturday morning and we all got a fairly decent rest overnight. Rinat and Matthew took one bedroom and Mom got the other. The girls slept, after lots of giggling, on the pullout sofa. They have really bonded to each other during this waiting period. Typical girls they are even going to the bathroom together! Matthew and I have no idea what all the whispering and giggling is about. At least no body is crying. We are waiting on Zarina and Sholpan to finish brushing their teeth and then are going to venture out in search of breakfast. No word from our translator on what the day has in store yet. The girls have on new outfits from home and Rinat is sporting some American jean shorts. When they arrived last night there was no sign of the clothes we had left here with them. The girls have now emerged and look lovely. Now we will see if I can get them to follow me to find food.

  1. Wonderful! Marvelous! Stupendous!

    Is it the same mall we walked to from the Almaty Hyatt? There was ice skating in the middle of the food court. There was a supermarket upstairs. It was a bit of a hike from the hotel to the mall. The amusement park is just down the block from the Hyatt.

    Everybody looks chipper. A little more paperwork, and you'll be home!
