Tom and I went over to the open market to see what treasures we could find. It was overwhelming to me. Seeing all of the fruits, vegetables, and housewares laid out on the ground on blankets or tarps was overwhelming for me. The markets in Russia were more organized and clean. I know that in time I will come to see this as normal and will be able to shop there along with everyone else. But, this being our first day I struggled to take it all in.
