To everyone who prayed for our recent trip to Krakow - thank you! It went very well. I was able to get my visa, though not for as long a term as I had planned. There was a misunderstanding with the paperwork, and I ended up with a visa for only six months. However, in September I can apply again and, Lord willing, should be able to get my full five year visa at that time.

We got one of the locals to snap this shot of us standing in front of Krakow's Florian Gate.

Kels and I had a wonderful time in Krakow as usual. For us, Krakow is a nice place to relax and take some time off from the daily grind of L'viv. Here are a few pictures from our trip. Thanks again for praying!

Getting to Krakow means about 9 hours on a train. Great time to get some reading done!

Because the tracks in Ukraine are a different gauge than the rest of Europe, they actually have to change the wheels on the entire train when we get to the border! This process can take up to four hours.

The train is jacked up (with us in it!) so that the wheels can be changed at the border.

Our friends Beata and Serhiy graciously allowed us to stay in their beautiful home while we were in Krakow.

Of course, we found time to visit our favorite climbing wall in Krakow.

The gym in Krakow is much larger and nicer than the one we have in L'viv.

Oh, and did we mention that McDonald's in Krakow has sausage-egg-and-cheese biscuits? Glory hallelujah!
