**Friday Night Update**

Double good news tonight... wait, it's a triple good news night.

1) Rhonda, T and I got to hang out with Kate - my wonderful translator from trip #1. She's SUCH a doll. I forgot how much I missed her. She told us she's had other families - but no one was as fun and crazy as Rhonda and I. Hahaha. We love you too Kate!!

2) Luba, Ivan the coordinator/courier's wife called and all went well at the Embassy. Ivan has T's VISA and is headed to the Moscow airport. BONUS!

3) Kate called Sergei to translate for us and Sergei said to tell us that he'd be here a little before noon to pick us up. Momentary panic. Our flight is at noon, right? NYET! I checked our reservations and our flight isn't until 3pm!!! The flight that leaves Seoul on Sunday is the noon time - tomorrow's flight isn't until 3pm. PLENTY of breathing room in case of a flight delay.

WHEW! Now I can sleep a little easier. Speaking of sleep -- T is sleeping HARD tonight. She must have had a blast with Kate etc tonight because when Luba called our hotel she kept ringing the phone in the bedroom - where T is sleeping. She stirred the first time, but the 2nd time not much of a peep at all.

Paka from Vlad -- hopefully the next post will be from Seoul with a report that all is well!
