As another week draws close, one more milestone can be checked off. Last week I sent a majority of my court documents off to my agency for arrival this Monday. While they were in process and getting ready to be sent to Vladivostok, my final document arrived - State Police Clearance is here! So today I rushed to get it apostilled and overnighted it to meet up with the rest of my paperwork. Everything should be together tomorrow and hopefully be sent on it's merry way to Russia.
In keeping with my theme of uploading different pictures from my trip - today's picture is of the little "convenience stores" that dot the side of the road. Imagine the cross between what we'd call a newspaper stand and a kiosk convenience store. They were all over the place - some specializing in breads, some in snacks and some containing meat. Yes meat. Very handy - but very different! I love how our cultures are so similar in some ways, and in others, so different!
