Out to Grandpa's Village

This past weekend my host family invited me to come along with them on an outing to their grandfather's village outside of Kiev. I have met this grandpa before, his name is Vasya and from what I had seen of him before he is a sweet man with a caring disposition. Anyways, the car ride was well, long and in close quarters. The kids sang the whole way and the mom was studying English on her ipod and talking to herself.  for those of you who know me, you will completely understand why this car ride was rather difficult. haha but either way, we made it to the village which was extremely different than any of the sights I have seen here. But as we were driving through the village, it is impossible not to notice how most of the houses are quite small and in bad shape so that was what I was ready for. Well, grandpa Vasya is like some sort of sausage king here in Ukraine (yes, seriously) so he is completely loaded and his house was spectacular!!  I spent the day watching Tangled (in Russian!) with the kids, playing around in the backyard, relaxing with the family, and enduring the never ending awkward moments.
What a guy heh?
