I am in Kstan right now. It has been a great week. I will arrive back in Kyiv on Sunday evening where two house guest for the week will greet me. I have a very busy week ahead of me.
Also, I was to travel back to Kstan around May 20. However, just last evening, we became aware of a conflict in those plans and I am not sure how things will work out. Part of the problem is that I am waiting on my visa to be approved so that I can return to Kstan later in the month and it should be approved on Monday. Tuesday is Victory Day in the former SU, and so most government offices will be closed on Monday and Tuesday.
The Kstan embassy is closed on Wednesdays so that means that the earliest I can get my visa would be Thursday. The Institute needs me to teach beginning on May 15. At this point I don’t think it will be possible for me to do that.
Pray for things to work out for me to get my visa next week. Thanks!
