Photo 1. I got to school early one day during my two week camp after the end of the spring semester. Some students looked at my guitar longingly so I let them mess around with it.
Photo 2. The majority of my camp consisted of team building activities and games. I’m pictured here with Maxim and Maxim. The Maxim on the left is screaming BLIN, which translates literally as PANCAKE but colloquially means CRAP!
Photo 3. An old Soviet bus arrived at my school unexpectedly, offering to whisk us away to our local milk factory. The field trip included a climb up the most precarious ladder I’ve ever seen, flaming milk experiments, and by far the worst smell I’ve encountered yet in
Photo 4. Brinza cheese, which is somewhat sour/bitter but goes well with bread.
Photo 5. After the hour long tour on a ninety five degree day, the workers at the milk factory gave each student a heaping cup of sour cream! I received an extremely dirty look after politely declining. I was also yelled at by the manager for taking this picture.

Every hour, the clock rings and the 12 apostles come through and show through a small window. The times listed include the hours of the day, the zodiac, the times of sunrise and sunset, and the phases of the moon. Legend has the clock maker’s eyes were removed after he finished so he couldn’t replicate his work for anyone else.

Project 25. After spraining my ankle, I was not allowed to stand or walk by my PC medical officer. I had to teach a leadership lesson and decided to just use my body as a blackboard.
