First of all this post has taken a lot longer to prepare than I anticipated, so from here on expect 3 – 4 weeks between posts. If you haven’t already, click on subscribe up above and add your e-mail address to the list, this way you will be notified by e-mail anytime I post a new video. I have made a major change in the way I am posting my video, I have switched from QuickTime to Flash. I am hoping that all of the people who were having trouble getting QuickTime to work will now be able to see the videos (I have converted all of the earlier posts as well). If anyone runs into a problem and is unable to see a video, please e-mail me right away so I can help you resolve it. If you don’t have the most recent version of Flash, it should ask you to update and it is a very quick download (less than 1 minute) and you don’t have to run any install programs. Now that I have that out of the way …
On the morning of my 3rd day in Belarus while eating my breakfast of pasta and ham with tea, Sasha and I discussed our homes and the differences, methods of heating, cooking, amount of land etc, of course since we don’t speak the same language we did it using a Russian/English dictionary and drawing pictures. It was fun and informative … and we laughed quite a bit!
That night I didn’t get home until almost 10:30. My family was still up watching TV and waiting for me. I went through the photo album that we had sent home with Kristina from her visits to Canada and explained who everyone was. They fed me again, it was sort of like a crepe, folded in half with a sour cream filling and of course tea. Didn’t get to bed till around 12:30.
Most of what happened in between is in the following video …. enjoy!
