Spring has sprung in Eastern Europe

The weather here has been perfect - not to hot, not to cold, JUST RIGHT :-)

We have been jacketless most of the time, although this helps us to stick out like a sore thumb, as many locals are still wrapped in scarves, hats, and winter coats.

Our temporary new home is LOVELY. If we were picky, it could be a little large, have some more storage, and a kitchen area. BUT there is a restaurant here that is very reasonably priced and the food is VERY good. They are trying hard to please us too. They just offered to do our laundry for us, which is really nice and we may have to take them up on that, although I'd rather do it myself.

We just have to walk up a path behind our little house on the hill, and the orphanage is right there.

Between visits today we wandered around the grounds, enjoyed the spring, feed the swans, and picked looked at the flowers.

I should also likely comment that our internet isn't so good.  So please wait a little longer.  Updates will come as we get access, and photo will come as I get cooperation.

It's hard to see in many of the photos, but most of the hill sides were just covered in yellow, white and purple flowers.
