On the 4th of July, we had a chance to celebrate the day with several other expat Americans. It was planned as a cookout in a park, but the weather did not cooperate. However, the good thing was that it was held in the new school building instead! It was a treat to get to see the new building. The school had been looking for a new location for a long time, and they really needed to find something for next year. After several other possibilities fell through, they finally found a place that looks great!
On Tuesday, we decided to enjoy the nice weather in a new place. We took a bus to an island in the gulf, where there is a town called Kronshtadt. It was nice to take a relaxing stroll in a smaller, quieter town, and to see the beautiful cathedral there.
