Brooke and Garrett rode their first marshrutka today. I LOVE sharing this experience with marshrutka-virgins. I personally feel marshrutkas are the devil's vehicles, so it is enjoyable for me to see others come to the same realization. Brooke almost got pushed off and left as we shoved ourselves on. I quickly grabbed her hand and held it as tightly as I possibly could...NO SISTERS LEFT BEHIND!...she was scared. The look on their faces, especially Brooke's, was priceless. Finally the crowd filtered a bit and we came to our destination. At that point we were able to debrief a little about their experience. Now they know and understand the marshrutka experience.

I'm SO Happy!
