A photo of me and Zhenya outside of the orphanage in Slobodskoy, Kirov, Russia
Last Sunday, I arrived back in the US after the most amazing week of my life! I traveled to Slobodskoy, Russia (about an hour outside of Kirov) and visited my friends (who now feel like an extended family) at an orphanage there! We played games, had great conversations, and just hung out together. They taught me so much Russian and I learned an unbelievable amount in such a short time. It made me so much more excited for this summer when I will be in Kirov for 6 whole weeks! This spring break reminded me how wonderful the language, culture, and people are in Russia. I am so blessed to have such incredible opportunities to go to the greatest place on earth!
Only 70 more days until I leave!
