There was a beautiful mosaic composed of Pysanky eggs of St. Sofia herself. We encountered a group of school children and they were posing for a picture there. The children were very rude when we went to leave. Even though I couldn't understand what he said to Tara, I could understand his tone. I guess that's typical for Ukrainian children. I would have never even considered speaking in such a disrespectful way to an adult when I was growing up.
I had to use the restroom while we were at St. Sofia's and there is where I got my first experience with "squatty potties". Because it seems extremely sacreligious to post a picture of them in the same post as St. Sofia's, I will include the squatties in another post. I believe that most Ukrainains have what we Americans would consider "normal" toilets in their homes, but squatty potties are what you use when you're out and about. Sometimes you have to pay to use them, othertimes not. You need to furnish your own TP as well.
I'll re-cap the remainder of Monday in another post. Stay tuned for the squatty potties! :)
