Zap Farm Show

On Thursday morning we went to the Farm Show in Zaporosia with Max Rudei and the four grad students who stayed home and worked when the other students went to Kiev last month.  Before we left Sasha needed new shoes, so he got the first pair that were donated by Source for Sports in Steinbach for this year, in the photo his are the bright yellow ones and Julia has on the pair she got two years ago of the same brand. Karina is away right now, helping Max's mother get ready to move to the village. We arrived at 9:30 but the show did not open until ten, so we checked out some of the outside stuff first.

 It's a much smaller version of the Kiev show... but I got lots of photos, including Garry talking to the models handing out brochures for a chemical company.

I didn't ask how much the giant chess set was...

the Ukrainian side, the other side were Tatars I think

the glassblower had a crowd watching

Time to go home... we had cheeseburgers at the drive-thru
