|Presenting the flag to the Lyceum|
Yesterday was our last day in Zaporizhzhya. We have made many friends and have had a wonderful time. The warmth of the people and the way that they made us feel so special was something that I will never forget. So, thanks to Lydia our wonderful host, her husband Sergie, the Zaporizhzhya Classical Lyceum staff , and the students who included us in their lives for our visit.
We had the honor of attending the end of year concert and award ceremony . The talent of the students is amazing! It is very evident that both the students and teachers have worked very hard. There was dancing, singing, and instrumental music.
Sara made a few remarks and presented a bouquet of balloon flowers. I made a few remarks and presented the U.S. flag to the school. It was a very special moment that I will always treasure.
After the concert, Sara and I boarded the overnight train to Kyiv. It was bumby, loud, and ho,t so we didn't sleep very much. I am back in the hotel in Kyiv. It is 7:00 am and I have meetings from 11:00 to 6:00, dinner, and then we leave for the airport at 2:00 am. So...no sleeping today or tonight! Maybe I will sleep on the plane!
Looking forward to seeing everyone soon! Goodbye Ukraine!!
