Since we FINALLY have our car, a little damaged but not too bad, we are finally able to do our major grocery shopping when we want to. Before we had to wait until one of our neighbors went. We also found a new store that is sort of like a wal-mart, it's huge and seems to have almost everything plus groceries! We were pretty excited...hey, it's the little things! The grocery side of it actually had milk in the refrigerated section! Wow! We've been here 3 months and have only seen boxed milk on the shelf. We must have been in shock because we didn't even get any. Not only that but the eggs were in the refrigerated section too! That's unheard of here! Happy day!
Then we found a HUGE and I mean HUGE outdoor (well under big tents) market place that seemed to go on forever! Lots of carpets, shoes, clothes, toys... shoes! Now if I can only remember how to get back there! We were on the "left bank" part of the city, which is actually kind of deceiving because on the map its actually on the right but anyways its the newer part of town. Lots of new building going up all over the place. I would have taken pictures but the driving here is a little bit crazy, I was trying to breathe and just hang on.
We then went to a park on an island in the middle of the Dnipro called Hydropark that had carnival rides and beaches. The beaches had lots of guys wearing speedo's and thongs. Not a pretty site. I'll keep those images to myself.
I thought by living over here we would escape all the presidential ads but... NO
Here Keenan is chasing my friend's dog Boo. He chased Boo all over her house. We are working on being "gentle" but he just gets too excited and has to slap and hit! Poor Boo, he really wasn't too impressed with Keenan after a while. Keenan always has to look under everything just on the chance there is something good to be found.The kid loves Peek-a-boo!
