Some "Lighter" Moments of Summer Camp in Ukraine

I have to take a few moments to a post a new entry that I should be naming "things you need to choose to laugh at or else you may get frustrated"- but that didn't have the same ring to it as the phrase "lighter moments." Following is a photographic glimpse of some of the more humorous (and sometimes not so pretty) moments experienced at our camps this summer. Enjoy!

This was where Mary Lynn, Amanda and I slept for a week...this picture makes it look more luxurious then it was.

Why squat alone when you can do it with a friend near by? Shall we say moral support? Welcome to our toilets at our Kherson Camp.

That degree in theatre has really paid off. Now I get to entertain groups of kids in a giant blue suit.

Pick your currency in the form of a cookie. US dollars, Euros and Ukrainian grivnas! With the falling rate of the dollar I think I'll go with the Euro please!

My friends assured me that a little protein with your morning cream of wheat does not do any harm! Ahh well...they eat them in Africa right?

You never know when you will stumble across a cow in the country...this one was getting a little too friendly.

Sala...a Ukrainian delicasy. Sala = pure lard. This is the one thing this girl chooses to pass on-- can't quite stomach this tasty Ukrainian treat--even if they call me crazy!

Now that was fun wasn't it?! Any volunteers for next summer? :)

I volunteer...but not for sala. That's too extreme for me. :-)

Annie said...

Hey! My degree was in theatre too! Serves one well, I have found - in so many ways!

The Sala would be something I'd pass on, too.

I adore those money cookies! What fun.

Ahh, Karen, you're too funny! The toilet picture made me laugh out loud here at work. My coworkers still don't believe it when I tell them what it's for!

Hope to see you soon...we got submitted. Save some ants for me! :)
