And yesterday was Int'l Women's Day, so happy day Women! And that means also that tomorrow is a day off.

It's cold and rainy today, and Katherine and Jack continue to suffer from cabin fever.

Earlier in the week the weather was a bit better, so much merrymaking was done at Shevchenko Park, just up the street from our apartment.

A holdover from communist times? Jack shares space on a communal swing. Individual swings, perhaps, still a bit too bourgeoisie...or maybe just on the other side of the park.

And like the good little Oligarch-in-training that he is, Jack is learning to drive a big SUV on the sidewalks. The better to avoid the traffic...

His friend Coby seems to have a bit more of a moral dilemma with the sidewalk driving. More thoughtful and ethical, perhaps, he seems to want to leave the domain of the sidewalks to the pedestrians.
