Friday evening we took the metro (subway) to the Stoddard's apartment and they fed us. Suzie is an excellent cook. We talked and then we all took the subway back up to Krashadik street - we thought it was blocked off on Friday night but it wasn't. So they walked us to the apartment and I showed them the view from the balcony - it was worth it!!!!

Nicoli showed up at 1130 and we were off to Boryspill where the airport is.

We were booked on the 1400 flight via Lufthansa to Frankfort and then a 1700 flight from Frankfort to DC. Then a 2209 to Richmond. As I checked my bag - I was overweight by 2 KG!!! That's cause Cody doesn't have a bag himself - so I stuffed some clothes in the backpack and we were off! I decided to have one last Piva at the airport (and use up some grivna) and as luck would have it I had to use the facilities before we took off but couldn't cause of the seatbelt!!! I used the facilities on the plane as soon as we were airborne.

When we got to Frankfort, we had one hour to find United and board the plane. We landed at one end of the terminal and took a shuttle to the other end because we were told to. Then we went through security again and then ran like the wind back to the other end and boarded the flight as they were closing the door. The United flight was a Boeing 757 and had wide seats and little tvs in each headrest. They served us food and wine and it was a nice 8 hour flight.

Then we got to DC and went through customs. No problem - took no more time than anyone else. Then we got our luggage and got to the ticket counter to check the bag to Richmond and we had no seat assignment - plus I was still 2 pounds over on weight so I stuffed some more stuff in the backpack ( it's getting heavy now!!!) We went through security again (took three times as long as customs) and finally got to the gate to find out they were overbooked. We finally did get the last two seats and arrived in Richmond at 2300 - 17 hours after we flew out of Kiev!

Went to church on Sunday but fell asleep around 5 for an hour or so! Went to work on Monday which would have been my first unpaid day had I not gotten home!

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she
can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
