We made it!
We got into St. Petersburg tonight around 8:30(their time, 12:30 home time). We were literally the last flight leaving Frankfort, and now they are closed. I'm not even thinking about the return flight, 3 days has to be enough time to clear some snow??!! Yes, you read that right, we only have 3 days here. It already doesn't seem like enough time with S. We enjoyed the drive from the airport to the hotel. Such amazing architecture here, and we only got to see it in the dark! Our driver was very nice but spoke little english. We got along alright with hand motions! The strip we are on is like Magnificant Mile in Chicago. Tons of shopping and restaurants. Once we checked in, we got a bite to eat in the hotel bar which was very good(and expensive!). It was great to sit and eat and take in the last 36 hrs. and the coming 72! Now we are back in our room and trying to get our stuff ready for the morning. I have packed my bag with the toys I bought for S, and I can't believe we will get to use them tomorrow! So much anticipation! We get picked up at 9:15 tomorrow morning(just 9 hours away!) and we will go first to our MOE appt. and then to the orphanage. While you all are sleeping we will be meeting S! Hopefully when you wake up I will have updates on our visit! That's all for now, going to try to convince our bodies it's bedtime!
