* VMI = Vlad Motor Inn
* You know you are a parent of a toddler again when you put on your black sweater you only wore one time and find dried cereal and bananas on the shoulder.
* Thanks to the comment on the last post, we are pretty sure B’s rash on his chin is from thumb sucking. He doesn’t suck his thumb to go to sleep but in the middle of the night he will suck it. It is almost like the caregivers tried to stop him from sucking his thumb because if you just touch his arm or hand he stops right away.
* Last night was Saturday night, Irina and Lana came to hang out with us since they know we are getting stir crazy. They brought some great treats and some stinky squid for Justin to try. We hung out in the White Rabbit for about two hours. Lana tried to teach us a Russian card came called Fool and Justin taught them to play 8 ball pool.
* This is a shot taken outside of the VMI. You don’t see men with machine guns every day, but when the owner of the hotel is visiting he brings his guards.
*These are some of the sites we see on our daily (sometimes twice a day) walk.
*Here is the market that we visit every single day – not really because we need anything – but because it gives us something to do! This is the one that has about 4 shelves and food and 6 shelves of liquor.
*During the week on our walk we will go by the private school in the neighborhood. They dismiss at 6:00 p.m. and usually we see Porsches and Audis and other fancy SUVs. Last Thursday this was the surprise of the day at dismissal time.
*On Saturday, things picked up a little at the park. This group brought down a ping pong table and saw horses for the afternoon. If you click on the picture and zoom in you can see the fierce competition.
