Just before 5:00 a.m. I heard chanting over the loud speaker from the nearby Orthodox church. The sun began to rise, which was a sight for sore eyes. I got up and decided to quietly gather my stuff and take a quick shower before my family awoke. One by one the rest of the family woke up and prepared for the big day. As you can see, however, some of us slept way longer than the rest of us:
Preparing the morning of the big day: Not that great of the picture but we didn't take many that morning.
I don't know how long we were able to stay this first visit but I remember how hard it was to leave him.
