Finally Connected to the World
After 5 days and 3 tries, I'm finally connected to the world through the internet.
I'm safe and sound in Uralsk. The flights were excellent and all three were actually early arriving in each destination. The food was wonderful on the flights, but I was SO tired all I really wanted to do was sleep, and I'm not the greatest at sleeping in sitting up, but I certainly worked at it.
I arrived on Monday of this week, just before noon. I was met by my coordinator here in Uralsk and my translator. They brought me to a really nice apartment and helped me do a little shopping to get me through the first 2 days.
I arrived to learn that Tuesday was a holiday, so I didn't get to go to the baby house. Instead I met up with L and A and their son M and we went to the park by the river to let M ride on the amusement park rides. It was a beautiful sunny day, and many people were out enjoying the sun. It was lovely to see L and A and catch up on news with them.
On Wednesday, at a very early time (7:30 a.m.) I was off to the baby house where I met him, my little man (I'll use MLM for him from now on). Oh, he's certainly trying to take my heart. I've had only 4 visits with him so far, but he certainly seems to be a very good match.
I'm still suffering from Jet Lag, and it is also hard to adjust to the sun rise/ sun set here in Uralsk, there really isn't any sun until almost 9 am and it is gone by 5, and I still have a month to go before the shortest day of the year.
Oh, but it is really nice to be connected to the world again.
