Day 5

Today's weather was cold and a little drizzly, but we decided to venture out anyway. We enjoyed a good meal at the buffet-style restaurant again and tried some other choices of the local foods. Still very good!

There are many beautiful, old Orthodox churches in the area. We were able to take a little tour to see the inside of one of  the oldest in the country - St Sophia Cathedral - which is 1000 years old. The fresco paintings inside are being restored and the mosaics are beautiful.

We're getting in a LOT of walking while we're here, so we're both hoping to leave a few pounds behind before we return home. Between yesterday and today, I know we put in at least 10 miles! My legs and calves are feeling it!

Our big day tomorrow will be to meet with the government's department for our interview at Noon! Please pray it will go smooth and there will be no glitches.

Late yesterday, I received a couple of pictures from a missionary team that visited the orphanage earlier this Fall. It warmed my heart to see updated pictures of both of the girls!

Paka paka!
