Lots to see

Thursday we walked up the street from us to see St. Sophia’s Cathedral and in the square in front of the cathedral were all these chickens. Not sure why. There weren’t any signs describing anything. So we took some pictures with them.  Why not?  Who doesn’t like a colorful chicken?

Monday’s Adventure

Even though it has been quite cool here since we arrived, we went exploring around the city a little bit.  We have been going out everyday actually, because when you are in a small apartment with three kids it is very beneficial for everyone’s health and wellness to go outside and walk around.

Here’s what we saw:
