Hey!! I'll be heading to Mexico in 22 days! I'm very excited about this wonderful opportunity to be a head teacher and to try and make the teacher's experience even better than the experience I had in Ukraine!
I hope to update my blog lots while in Mexico:) Do you have any upcoming travel plans?

I had the wonderful opportunity to live with a great host family and have my best friend live their too! They have a beautiful three story house. And I love our host family! I got to have four awesome brothers! And great host parents and grandparents. It's soo weird to be home in the United states now and reflecting on my experience!
The phone that opened the gate to enter the house. I thought it was the coolest thing!
A beautiful closet that Liliya( our host mom) hand painted so beautifully:) This is still in the entry way.

Here are some random pictures i've taken lately. I realized recently that I took most of my pictures on my travels and not in Ukraine where I have lived for a few months. So here's a selection of some that i've taken:
A cathedral at Lavra
The brown wooden church our host family goes to
My host familie's house where i've been living in Ukraine
A neat key
A store near the wooden church on our way to school and near our village
Trees are painted white at the bottom of them i'm not sure why?
A random street performer he was a character! I love his beard! And he's playing a very ukrainan instrument.
Another performer. Love his shirt! These are very ukrainian blouses. And they are hand stitched so sadly they are very expensive they are neat though!
A cute little swimming turtle Sorry the picture is very blurry.Saw him at the pet store.
Another swimming turtle!
The trolley bus! Take it everywhere.
