My Evening with Mary

Tonight, Song and I met up with Mary in Bishkek for dinner. We walked from the TsUM down toward the Beta Stores complex and found an Italian restaurant called Prego. I had some delicious fettuccine alfredo to eat. For dessert, we each got creme brûlée, which was a steal at only $2. It was great to catch up with Mary and learn more about Kyrgyzstan and the way things work in this country.

After dinner, we went over to the Beta Stores and did a bit of shopping. I was able to find a few more yurts for Shamrock, as I plan on giving him a different one each year to celebrate his Adoption Day. We then went in the supermarket part of the complex to take care of a necessary part of my visit to Kyrgyzstan...buying candy to bring home! I spent about $20 on candy, and I'm hoping it's not so heavy that my suitcase is overweight!

Now it's time to get ready for bed and hope I can sleep through the night. Last night, I did pretty well by going to bed at 7:30pm. I was awake from 1:30am until 3am, but then I fell back asleep until my alarm went off at 7:30am. I'm hoping to successfully sleep tonight, because tomorrow is a big of the most important days in my life! T-minus 14 hours until court.

P.S. No, we did not eat at Kyrgyz Fried Chicken (KFC), but I had to get a picture of it!


  1. You should be able to get MORE candy at any Russian store in Denver area :) Let me know if you need help locating it.
