Today was a much better day! Though bitterly cold. Though I hear that it is much colder back home in KC than it is here in Moscow. We went to the Moscow Zoo today. It is smack dab right in the middle of the city. Just one metro stop away from us. Since it was so cold a lot of animals were in their "homes" but we still got to see a lot of wildlife and Camden loved it. The only negative I would have of it, is the buildings that we could go in and see the warmer climate animals, such as giraffes, elephants, monkeys, etc, the building smelled HORRIBLE! Makes me realize how good the ventilation at our own zoo is, to avoid that horrible smell.
Afterwards we went to lunch at Burger King right across the street, Camden was starving. We got someone who spoke English so I braved ordering a chicken sandwich with no mayo. I hate all things condiments, and when I got my sandwich, it was pretty funny. They had taken a sandwich that had already been made, and just wiped the mayo off of it! LOL, too funny, I ate it anyway!
For dinner we splurged and went to TGIFridays, and Randy was pretty bummed that his Jack Daniels Chicken was the equivalent of $20 here. So he and Camden split chicken fingers, and I got the blackened chicken pasta. The chicken was excellent, the pasta, not so much. It was very bland and had no flavor at all. Afterwards we skyped with my mom, and got Camden off to bed.
Now for the help part, we are at a stand still on what to get our two male coordinators for gifts. We have a friend who is coming back on Monday to finish her adoption with is, and is willing to pick up something for us, but we are at a loss! Help, what did you get your male coordinators? Or male anybody, translator, driver. Just something for a man. Have a great day!
Christmas came early.
