We have met some our neighbors who live near us and it’s been nice getting to know them. They have been very helpful in telling us where we can find certain stores and talking about different things about the way of life here in Siberia. We met when I took Keith to the doctor for his baby check-up at the nearby clinic. They heard me and a friend speaking English and we found out that we lived in the same building. After that we have gotten together a few times, speaking English and Russian. They want to learn more English and I want to learn more Russian.
They loved Micah’s guitar playing and singing! We are looking forward to getting to know them better.
Yesterday Violet and I went outside to the playground, and while we were out there we met up with our American neighbors who live a few floors above us. And even though in these pictures the people are wearing coats, it was almost 70 degrees Fahrenheit outside. It seems like unless its really warm outside, they like to stay covered, especially with the children here. If it was a bit cooler outside, we would need to have some kind of hat on Violet or else we would get scolded by a random grandma.
