This past week we had to say good bye to lots of our friends here in Moscow before our move out to Siberia. We will miss all of our friends and we encouraged them all to come visit us.
Yesterday morning a “moving” truck came and took most of our belongings to be shipped out to Siberia.
Spending time with friends and saying goodbyes before we leave
This morning we woke up bright and early at 5 am to head to the airport to catch a mid-morning flight. Thanks to our friend Ruvim for driving us there, everything went really well (except for Keira getting car sick on the way to the airport). But we made it there in time and the kids did well on the short 1.5 hour flight to Ukraine.
We will be in Kiev, Ukraine until we get our visas to be able to return into Russia. We decided, instead of staying in a hotel that would cost a lot of money, to rent an apartment for a reasonable price. We found a great place on booking.com that is right in the center of town. When we aren’t busy dealing with visa stuff, we plan on walking around and enjoying the city.
Here is our view from the balcony of the center of town
Stay tuned for updates and more pics of the city.
We have less than a week left here in Moscow before we move to our next home in Siberia. This is a bittersweet time for us as it is very hard to say goodbye to those that we have come to love here. On the other hand, we are very ready to move on with the work that HE has prepared us to do.
We would ask for your thoughts in the next couple weeks as we head to Ukraine to get new visas, then fly back to Russia and on to Siberia.
