A Russian Thanksgiving

Today, Friday, we all celebrated Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is not a holiday in Russia, so the Ps have a tradition of inviting over other missionaries for a noon feast for a traditional American meal. Most of the people who came today are part of the Christian School here. 

The P apartment Ladies in the obligatory feather caps

The meal was amazing. We were stuffed. Then, since Friend H is homesick and I'm worn out, we agreed that if we became overpeoplewhelmed in the now even fuller apartment we would simply go for a walk. We did walk down to Smolney after lunch

 Sticky and Miss K trying on hats. Most of them turned out small for adult heads,
 which resulted in a lot of fittings and some precarious headgear.
