Slovakia - Sunday, Monday

Today as we left Nehemiah Ukraine we traveled through the lovely country of Slovakia.  We only had a 2 1/2 hour wait at the border which was good.  We traveled through sleepy little villages with sheep grazing among the apple orchards and mountains in the background.  Below are pictures of our border experience, and our time in the city of Kosice which is our favorite city to visit  next to Prague.  We leave at 3:15 today and fly to Vienna where we have a 17 1/2 hour layover.  Yes we will stay at a hotel. We hope to do a little site seeing if time and money permit.  We will post pictures if we get to do that.  Much love, PW and Sherry

Like the scenery. Love the two of you unwinding a bit.
Happy to hear you'll be home in one more day.
May God bless you with smooth and on-time flights. Amen
