Well, That Was Unexpected

Real life is stranger than fiction...depending on which authors you read, of course.

st petersburg blue skies

quick note--writing from st. petersburg. it's our first day here and we are in love with this city. seriously, one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever been in. canals, churches, totally european, and the people seem less hostile than in moscow. i can definitely say that being in russia and seeing the gorgeous onion-domed churches--voted sexiest architwectural feature by julie inc!--helps dissipate my resentment of their totally corrupt and hostile citizens. apparently people who smile too much are considered imbeciles, so i'm teh village idiot if there ever was one. i just lost my wallet, which sucked as it had money and atm and credit, my passport wasnt in there. wasnt stolen, just dropped and then the cab sped away with it safely in tow. anyway, mood barely dampened. we are in the midst of the white nights in which it doesnt get dark...ever. 11pm and still looking at blue skies. tomorrow we will go see the raising of a bridge and the hermitage--which is also totally sexy.

by the way, all thsoe fairy tales from childhood about princesses and carriages and jewels: all tru in Russia! amazing,. went to the kremlin. and red square--st basils...it looks like cahrlie and the chocolate factory, cant wrap mind against bloody commie persecution. thought everything would be gray and cold, but there is much life here, and many many scantily clad women in stiletto heels. i'm sure this is a stop on the heinous men of the world tour.

anyway, so far so good--very cool experience, have lots more fun details to write in the future, but now we must away, trip has definitely improved since vietnam! would relaly appreciate continued prayer! love you
julie

=) Jules. Awesome.
We are going to have our dumpling party this Saturday for Jessie. And this past Thursday chapel, we(Naomi, Andrea, Campbell, Libeck, Luke, and I) sang "And Friends are friends forever if the Lord's the lord of them..." She cried. We cried, too.
It really doesn't feel like you guys are leaving. =)
Anyways... just a tidbit of what's happening around here.
I have lots to share. God's working on me...(sigh)... as always. =)
