Sunday - Free Day

We were not able to go to the orphanage today, so we didn't see Ulia. We visited this church first thing this afternoon, then we went out into the city to walk around, and eat. The city of Donetsk is very large. Our translator said that the population is maybe 1 million. I don't know if that is correct, but it is really big. The Cutshalls asked if we had seen the football (soccer) stadium, and we saw the Donetsk Football Club Stadium yesterday, and right across the street they are building a monstrous football stadium, in which the World Championships will be played in 2012. Our tranlator has been very nice. The food is really good here, for the most part. We had some awesome pizza today. We will meet with the Head Orphanage Director at 8 in the morning. The director we have seen the last few days is the assistant.
