So this was sadly my last weekend in Vladivostok, and I am starting to go into my panic mode. I hate saying goodbye and I hate the idea of “lasts.” But, I think that I made the best of my last bit of free time in the city. I am truly going to miss feeling so independent/meeting new people everyday/this beautiful city!
Here is a short list of things I accomplished this weekend-
*Last trip to our favorite microbrewery/restaurant.
*I bought so many souvenirs… It is out of control. I have no clue how I am going to get it all home… I think I am going to have to do some purging of clothing/other unnecessary things!
*Bought one of my favorite street foods (it is georgian cuisine.. super good, super cheap)
*Spent the rest of the day painting matriyoshka dolls/listening to christmas music. I shamelessly bought a set of wooden dolls with paint! It was so much fun!
*Spent the morning reading in my favorite coffee shop with a big pot of tea
*Met up with Michael and Elena (a girl who facebooked Michael saying that she was interested in hanging out with Americans. She was REALLY awesome and we hit it off pretty quick. I am very sad that I am just now meeting her)
*Went to the Aquarium (which was absoultely hilarious, I will post some photos on facebook. There were more dead fish there than live ones… They perserved them in these really creepy scientific jars…. Also, there were some dead fish floating in the tanks with live fish… It was kind of sad…)
*Went to a cafe and played clue, scrabble and jenga
*Went to Subway (I vowed that I would NEVER do that here… but Elena insisted. It wasn’t so bad. I just got a veggie sandwich)
This week is going to fly and I am going to be in panic(I probably already am in panic mode)! :’(
I am so excited to see all my friends and family though!
