Day 3
PictureIt’s now the morning of Day 3, so while we wait for the EZRA van to pick us up it’s time for coffee, hot chocolate, pastries and team talk before we head off to Myacoskova (state shelter) for our first day of teaching.  Right on time the van and our dear friend and interpreter Olya arrived and we are off along cobblestone streets lined with blooming chestnut trees and those beautiful Orthodox cathedrals.  PictureLooking at the beauty all around us it is hard to think that our task for the next two full days will be training with 35 care givers, case workers and psychologists to use art as healing as they struggle each day trying to rescue and salvage at risk kids from the streets of Kyiv.

Anya Geletiuk, representing our host, The International Leadership and Development Center had made all the arrangements.  PictureAfter the Team looked over the materials brought from the USA and the materials furnished by ILDC and a quick trip to the store for a few items the teaching was off and running.  Of course, during our breaks we enjoyed visiting with all our new Ukrainian friends, eating tasty Ukrainian chocolates and drinking lots of tea. 

PictureLunch was at a local Ukrainian restaurant with lots of Borsht and not so hot brown potatoes.
