MOSCOW part1

Tyndale Library

The library is full of old and used books. I didn't see one that looked completely new or had the stiff and sticky cover that most books from the public library have. The door at the end leads out to the classrooms and Student Commons.

This is one of the study areas in the library. It is the biggest and about in the middle.

Most of the houses are very unique, either with brightly colored siding and trim, interesting architecture, and/or flower gardens. Tulips, Daffodils, and Grape Hyacinth are the most common flowers (I've even seen some that look like they are growing wild--in the midst of bushes and the cracks of the side walk!).

Everything is green and growing in Moscow!

A Methodist Church we passed as we walked to school today.

This was actually a house on the side of a main street down town.

I've never seen a red and yellow tulip before!

Caity! It looks like your having such a great time in Moscow and I know you are. The tulips are so gorgeous. Such cute little houses too! I can't wait to hear and see more. Love and hugs.

Thanks for the pictures, Caity, and the glimpses of Moscow. I love the houses...they remind me of charming ones found in the South. :) We miss you!

Caity, thanks for sharing the beautiful sights you are getting to see. I love all the tulips and naturalized bulbs. My only problem is that I think those things ought to be blooming in February or March, not May. They certainly have a long winter there.

I love the houses, they are so pretty; just like the brown, tan, caramel, beige, cocoa varieties we have here. Such variety!

We'll look forward to more pictures as time permits.
