Saturday night Renat asked me if I wanted to go on an adventure, and I said, "Yes!" I took the bus (after waiting 30 minutes for one and then taking his suggestion of just getting on a different one) about 20 minutes north of where I live to an area of the city called Chernikovka. It was my first time there so he took me to Victory Park. One thing you will notice is that Russians are very proud of their accomplishments in World War II. They have statues every where. We started off at a monument for mothers and he translated one the poem for me.
