Russia Trip 2: The food sucks!

Today it hit me. The food here in Siberia really is not very good. A typical breakfast consists of a typical Amrican dinner, no lie. We had the best meal since we arrived today (lunch) and it was a cheesy pasta from an italian joint, you can't mess that up. Yesterday we went to Subway and they do mess that up. The meat is basically Spam. It sucks. Sorry to complain, it is just a reality. On a different and more important note, our sons are doing amazing! We saw them earlier today and will see them tomorrow. We will celebrate our oldests 4th birthday! Please keep praying for us! we have 3 more weeks left here in the former USSR.

Hang in there! The food really is bad. . .Ask Serge to take you for a typical Russian meal. . .he and Yelena took us on Thanksgiving for smoked and raw fish, latkes, and caviar among other things. It wasn't too bad. I did lose 5 pounds on our first 5 day trip, though! Looking forward to hearing more about your trip!
