Ting Tong's summer holiday
Vecolny, The Crimea, Ukraine
Those of you who speak Russian might have noticed something funny about the name of the village we are staying in; it means 'Merry'. Which is fitting, since the three of us are indeed having a very merry time here. The sun is shining - almost too hard - the sea is on our doorstep and we have spent the last few days being deliciously idle on the beach. Apart from my rather hot 5.7 km run this morning our time has been spent horizontally, reading and simply soaking up the rays.
Its not that interesting reading about people lying on the beach doing nothing, so I'll keep it short. One thing I do want to say though is that Jo and I found out this afternoon that out of 16,000 entries we have made it down to the last 10 in Cosmo's 'Fun, Fearless Female Award' which is dead exciting. I think the final decision is in September.
We're still living with our Russian friends from St Petersburg, who are hanging out here for the summer running a club and putting on parties. Sleep doesn't seem to be on their agenda and they are very lovely and lots of fun. Check out their website www.osravers.com (Old School Ravers!) We went to a party they put on in the village last night and are tootling off to another one on the beach tonight.
Still loving the Ukraine, although TT's caliper issue is a minor headache which we have got to think of a way to sort out.
With love from the Sun. Ants x
