Today we had to move apartments, the one we were in was not available for Wed. so we hauled all our stuff to an apartment 2 buildings up and then Oleg and I went to the WW2 museum were we saw a pair of gloves made out of human skin, several tanks and planes and a statue that rivals the Statue of Libery.
Next we went to check out the caves at Lavra, not a good place for your resident claustraphobic. We went down and down and down in a single file line with many others all of holding candles to view several monks in glass coffens. It was a slow moving line as many people stopped to kiss each casket. For the most part the monks were respectfully covered head to toe with about 3 or 4 of them with exposed hands. Their was also one area that house several skulls in glass jars. The ceilings as you were walking grew shorter till I was bending to get thru as well as being very narrow and will all of us holding candles for light it was also very hot. I enjoyed the experiance and am glad I did it however once was enough. I just could stop thinking about how glad I was that Ukraine does not have earthquakes.
