I have been doing a HORRIBLE job of posting of more than just my trips. I wish I was a travel blogger but sadly I am not. I am trying to make more of an effort to post just every day things. I think the biggest reason I stopped was because I never had my DSLR camera with me, but I'm trying to get more intentional with my iPhone. Sorry if the pictures aren't that great. I'm kind of annoyed with my iPhone lately. I'm never satisfied with the pictures anymore. Maybe I dropped my phone one too many times. ;)
On Thursday (February 4) our director invited us (the native English teachers) to a gathering at the Tyulkin House Museum, which also included some Fulbright members. They invited some musicians to come and sing for us and the director of the museum gave us a brief history of the museum. The overview was given in Russian so thank goodness people could translate for me. I'm still struggling to learn the language. Afterwards, everyone (except me because I can't sing) sang Jingle Bells and Russian songs while we drank tea and ate a ton of cookies.
