Meetings with dear friends.
First photo is with Lyudmila Sinyavskaya who had her mitral valve replaced in Nashville at Centennial Hospital in 1997 and spent that summer with us.
Then unexpectedly taken for two days to tour the beautiful city of Chernivtsi in southwestern Ukraine.
Now back in Vinnytsia before traveling Saturday to lecture in Ternopil and then Uzhorod.

Here are some photos of beautiful Chernivtsi sites and lastly photos of the ancient fortress in Kaminyets Poldillski. Please note that in the city center there is a beautiful cross memorializing those lost in 2014 at Maidan. Second photo.
It stands where there used to be a statue of Lenin. I told our tour guide we could not put up such a cross in America today at a public owned site. He was shocked.
