Travelog for: Qah

Beijing, China - 16th July 2012

By: qball

Hello, everyone! My name is Qah. It is said Qah means monkey in an old language.

As a baby, I am curious about the whole world.
Is it the same way people live in different areas? What is the main food? What to do in leisure time ? What is the residential building like? And so on.
I hope I can answer these questions one day.

I am in China now. And I will start my adventure soon. To see the world, to grow up.

I find some postcards in a drawer. It is so amazing. Beautiful landscape, blooming flowers, and special buildings! All of these are attracting me so much.

Yes. It is the time to go out. Even just a walk on the street. It is full of green. And sunshine makes me so comfortable.  :cyclops:

By: Katusha

Hello, Mommy! Hurray! I'm in Kiyev now! It was very long travel, but finally I'm here.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-cjD6cP5OLDE/UCuPsJWjLFI/AAAAAAAACSM/mZCjnbfywOw/s640/IMG_1110.JPG

At first I didn't see nothing, but then heard some noise outside.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-8ebt1XZE_ms/UCuPsFIgmpI/AAAAAAAACSE/Ths4IQv3gVw/s640/IMG_1112.JPG

Then my envelope was opened by somebody and I saw...

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-ynNEuz0jAaU/UCuPsLedmmI/AAAAAAAACSI/b7pHZQGrmhY/s640/IMG_1113.JPG

...all my new friends! That were MokoMoko and other toys.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-d_4EoIS5Hlg/UCuPs7E_mYI/AAAAAAAACSU/v-jTikldvTk/s640/IMG_1114.JPG

They are very fun and met me with all hospitality. I like my new buddies!

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-8qfbH4StxQI/UCuPtqjnGdI/AAAAAAAACSg/TOEIR_Qo_CA/s640/IMG_1116.JPG

My host mom liked your little letter and a present. She said, this girl is so cute!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-LczEzHEZh0Y/UCuPtXYNQZI/AAAAAAAACSc/Hpyfiuim2FU/s480/IMG_1115.jpg

So you see - I'm fine and very glad to be in new place. Hope to show your more very soon!

Bye-bye, Mommy!
Your Qah.

...there are so many tasty recipies...

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-htEzEWX_lFg/UC00787XjnI/AAAAAAAACTM/Yi5YBL_ZMTA/s640/2.jpg

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-hhoqNnSfJuM/UC00742AcFI/AAAAAAAACTQ/CpLhybmFxI0/s640/3.jpg

This is our pancake heap!  :rolleyes:

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-f--UL18xRSk/UC008eBsmzI/AAAAAAAACTY/l6Yg2OoWP9o/s640/4.jpg

After all our work it was very pleasant to take a cup of tea and a couple of pancakes with sour cream and homemade apricot jam! Yummy!

Kiyev, Expocenter, Ukraine - 18th August 2012

By: Katusha

Hi, Mommy! This day we visited the National Expocenter of Ukraine. It occupies very big territory and there are many beautiful buildings here.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-15G5Z3AqxtA/UDpNuP57NTI/AAAAAAAACT4/Ac3mg5GdFZc/s640/1.JPG

Here we decided to rent bikes and to go for a cycle ride in the big park of Expocenter.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-suQN5vt6RIQ/UDpNyprOvmI/AAAAAAAACVE/6fNOGSLKazw/s512/2.JPG

In the park there are many big and small paths and riding along them you can see many interesting things.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-9-C13N7WsA8/UDpNutPaofI/AAAAAAAACT8/aOY-tjuarXw/s640/11.JPG

Wonderful mushrooms..

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-ZvaSPmcuujQ/UDpNvb71TII/AAAAAAAACUE/cBAXC5fT3DE/s640/12.JPG

In the end of our forest route we found this pound.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-PuTRUZZk9R4/UDpNvuKgvqI/AAAAAAAACUM/7aH87YBrnHc/s640/13.JPG

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-ncIUP-7YvmY/UDpN0ueP5EI/AAAAAAAACVg/jp6clSrwaTw/s640/22.JPG

Finally we finished our little travel and came back to the Expocenter.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-LZXL73M8C4I/UDpN0zJLPcI/AAAAAAAACVo/beepJVwqy48/s640/23.JPG

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-ihx2k-aTVRI/UDpN00MXeuI/AAAAAAAACVk/8Bp91pffeec/s640/24.JPG

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-JSKr2qpLYuM/UDpN1cZt7uI/AAAAAAAACVs/TeT1HJ_AFCY/s640/26.JPG

We walked a little around it.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-mbYO7RbEOT4/UDpN1_xtzTI/AAAAAAAACV4/B6FAC_OArCg/s640/27.JPG

And even met several weddings. Nothing surprising - people like to take wedding photos here.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-gLTQS92g5Xo/UDpN5W4n-9I/AAAAAAAACW0/i6pkJmkIIBk/s640/35.JPG

Then we went back home. And met these swans...

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-XOTV-pwrgNY/UDpN5wqe6TI/AAAAAAAACW8/y2bohIr-Vj8/s640/37.JPG

...and also many sculptures.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-BYSWfB5J2PQ/UDpN6VPw6lI/AAAAAAAACXE/h36GbPJRakc/s640/38.JPG

Some of them were like alive!

Bye-bye for now,
Your Qah.

Kiyev, Ukraine - 19th August 2012

By: Katusha

Hi, Mom! It's me again. I want to show what we did today. This morning the weather was very sunny and we decided to go to university stadium and to play in basketball a little. We took also my host's turtle Yasha. She likes to take sun-baths from time to time.

And I understand her very well!  B)

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-ZCBy8gCdnB0/UEOcqQnR5QI/AAAAAAAACYg/OXATDQjAsE4/s640/1%2520-%2520%25D0%25BA%25D0%25BE%25D0%25BF%25D0%25B8%25D1%258F.JPG

At first she was afraid of something and hid in her little turtle-house. She is so shy.  :rolleyes:

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Jfhxt_5Md_Y/UEOcrhhSxgI/AAAAAAAACYw/SA82Ua9nzQw/s640/2%2520-%2520%25D0%25BA%25D0%25BE%25D0%25BF%25D0%25B8%25D1%258F.JPG

But soon she got accustomed and agreed to photo with me.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-MxT7pkrIVPc/UEOcsO4SQHI/AAAAAAAACY8/0kwNSLJsiLs/s640/3%2520-%2520%25D0%25BA%25D0%25BE%25D0%25BF%25D0%25B8%25D1%258F.JPG

Then we played. Basketball is not very simple game for me, but I even put one ball in the busket!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-IMhQZCXZ7lg/UEOcsbWeV5I/AAAAAAAACZA/NtCyOxJbCuQ/s640/4%2520-%2520%25D0%25BA%25D0%25BE%25D0%25BF%25D0%25B8%25D1%258F.JPG

So I liked this play.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-i-Qm1rWshh4/UEOcsu0P3vI/AAAAAAAACZI/MDr9mZlbZo0/s640/5%2520-%2520%25D0%25BA%25D0%25BE%25D0%25BF%25D0%25B8%25D1%258F.JPG

On the way back I noticed that fall is very close. Rowanberries are red already...

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-EKUphBjCWlU/UEOctSdrNbI/AAAAAAAACZY/AFwN-bOc2eA/s512/6%2520-%2520%25D0%25BA%25D0%25BE%25D0%25BF%25D0%25B8%25D1%258F.JPG

...and some leaves are yellow and falled.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-dySA2Whh8JY/UEOctyJx3EI/AAAAAAAACZU/Sr_4VJ_UX64/s512/7%2520-%2520%25D0%25BA%25D0%25BE%25D0%25BF%25D0%25B8%25D1%258F.JPG

Also we found an apple-tree. But all apples were green as yet.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-qQITEDi7ESk/UEOcuddzo9I/AAAAAAAACZg/3AUFYzHvWl4/s640/8%2520-%2520%25D0%25BA%25D0%25BE%25D0%25BF%25D0%25B8%25D1%258F.JPG

Then we went by park, where I saw several ponds and a pinery. There were many people who were resting, playing games and fishing.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-tLVB3x7idIw/UEOcu8rZ0yI/AAAAAAAACZo/2Py007fQl50/s640/9%2520-%2520%25D0%25BA%25D0%25BE%25D0%25BF%25D0%25B8%25D1%258F.JPG

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-JMNdHbIbhRY/UEOcq73CQMI/AAAAAAAACYo/HLVEagRhCOg/s640/11%2520-%2520%25D0%25BA%25D0%25BE%25D0%25BF%25D0%25B8%25D1%258F.JPG

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-Wcq3S99XspI/UEOcqxJ7bBI/AAAAAAAACYk/5v7L0wHIvVk/s640/10%2520-%2520%25D0%25BA%25D0%25BE%25D0%25BF%25D0%25B8%25D1%258F.JPG

It was very interesting day!
Bye-bye!)

Kiev, Independence Square, Ukraine - 24th August 2012

By: Katusha

Hi, Mommy! Sorry for delaying, my host was busy a little - her studies at English school began. But now here I am! And I want to show you what we did on 24th August.

In the morning we went to the centre of city by the underground.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-FezrZ2IC7tM/UFbmlW20PcI/AAAAAAAACaI/4PgzwmTevwQ/s640/IMG_1312.JPG

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-MbrClK62LwI/UFbmlKPVqAI/AAAAAAAACaE/MRokO3nyauc/s448/IMG_1313.JPG

When we arrived, we got to one of the oldest movie theatre in Kiev.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-6pymXpVlZmw/UFbmoNKjEoI/AAAAAAAACa4/fxs6zJqPHhQ/s512/IMG_1323.JPG

Then we got to main street of Kiev - Kreschatik. There were many people here. It was a big festival, because August 24 is an Independence Day of Ukraine - national holiday.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-PO6eXY0N5I8/UFbmzawvBaI/AAAAAAAACdw/R_VvBrmXJoY/s640/IMG_1366.JPG

Then we went to the Friendship of Nations Arch. It is very big and looks very beautiful in the nigth, when it is illuminated of colour lights.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-jZLPomQQ_RA/UFbmzj7uI0I/AAAAAAAACd4/M491aFCh4fE/s640/IMG_1368.JPG

Here you can see wonderful panorama of Kiev and the Dnepr river.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-MpX7GKf6Xew/UFbm0KGlerI/AAAAAAAACeA/ZpEDTu7jB80/s640/IMG_1370.JPG

Then we came back to the Independence Square and went down to the underground to go home.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-6Mjnuu5QQA4/UFbm0tnBQzI/AAAAAAAACeI/ZC0sM5R-Xa0/s640/IMG_1371.JPG

So you see, it was very saturated day. Of course, we were tired, but despite everything it was very interesting day!

Bye-bye,
your Qah!

Kiev, Ukraine - 2nd September 2012

By: Katusha

Hi, Mommy! This day my host had a test in language school, so we got up early, although it was hard to do because it was Sunday. When my host passed her test, we decided to go for a little walk before to came back home. So what I saw:

The Heart Monument

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-iZ-f__HFkNA/UGhk6hveScI/AAAAAAAACe8/FpYxnm0AmxM/s640/IMG_1389.JPG

Some playbills

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-O30enWRGyG4/UGhk7djVUaI/AAAAAAAACfE/m5_hkt10NfI/s640/IMG_1390.JPG

Buisness Center

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-HMw11QUnvp0/UGhk7NFTnNI/AAAAAAAACfA/f-uq5pDizMc/s512/IMG_1392.JPG

In a window of candy shop we saw this fun mini candy factory. It was very yummi to watch how candies are cooked.

Also we walked by souvenir store. I liked dolls in national costums.

As usually our walk ended in the Independence Square.

Kiev, Pirogovaya Nikolay, Ukraine - 16th September 2012

By: Katusha

Hi, Mom! It's me! One day my host and I found an interesting cafe, where you can try a lot of pies with all kinds of fillings.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-_ft4rdusbSo/UHaVAZFNHZI/AAAAAAAACtw/w1cAnLg4UVw/s640/IMG_1420.JPG

So we decided to visit it and to try something tasty :rolleyes: After my host's studies we went straight this place!
While we were waiting for our order, I looked through the window. Day was great and sunny. Last autumn sunny days..

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-0HrbWEPSB8s/UHaS2SoNVUI/AAAAAAAACs0/8FdAq-MQwcc/s512/IMG_1422.JPG

Then our order was brought! There were one unsweetened pie and two pies with sweet fillings - blueberry and cherry. It was a big feast as for me :cyclops:

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-YrE33y8DJMY/UHaS2CzYucI/AAAAAAAACsw/GY7ezH9LSi0/s512/IMG_1421.JPG

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Nbnrte4uY2I/UHaS2ukPP5I/AAAAAAAACs4/9byebYHj1UE/s512/IMG_1423.JPG

And tea was also great. My was with fresh raspberries, mint leaves and lime, I guess.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-bPNUPj6F6ks/UHaS3PdM_tI/AAAAAAAACtA/ISZUlVdk0f4/s512/IMG_1424.JPG

After our hearty lunch we went for a little walk along the side-street.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-zUXP2wVFHZU/UHaS4IZqbaI/AAAAAAAACtQ/VhT9hA70dgQ/s512/IMG_1429.JPG

In the end of our walk we met these people with green umbrellas. It was some action. Witness for nature I think or something like that.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-CgT4RqPWp7E/UHaS4rHYPeI/AAAAAAAACtg/QhKNd9mGy4E/s640/IMG_1431.JPG

That was my day :rolleyes:
Buy-buy!

Host house and Olimpic Stadium, Ukraine - 11th October 2012

By: Katusha

Hello, Mom! Today we cooked the big pie with eggs and spring onions. Nobody from us has never baked this pie before. So we were excited a little and were afraid of spoiling everything.  :cyclops:

So we began..

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-YxKbp54qkCE/UIUpdJ_Z33I/AAAAAAAACwo/iGSS8eL4bA4/s480/Photo%25281%2529.jpg

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Ed8EG5svI6o/UIUpe9Hs5KI/AAAAAAAACxA/WEUqHd_3js0/s480/Photo%25282%2529.jpg

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-uSGUAmGib7E/UIUpe2KQTUI/AAAAAAAACxE/8Oiz-JFW29Y/s480/Photo%25283%2529.jpg

We weighted all the ingridients and mixed them...

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-VNGmjNF_gU4/UIUpfUCZO7I/AAAAAAAACxI/mr4Ovubz6bc/s480/Photo%25284%2529.jpg

Tadaaaam! Our pastry was ready.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-3neclaxOGjk/UIUpfykbR5I/AAAAAAAACxc/M58dCLbSCao/s480/Photo%25285%2529.jpg

Then we put it off for a little time and decided to go for a short walk. Where I saw the big national stadium. The World Football Championship Euro 2012 was right here.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-lxkOTHeG0OE/UIUpcyTODXI/AAAAAAAACwk/H4es9RFUeaE/s640/IMG_1565.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-e79LaBrVcz8/UIUpdDkZ_xI/AAAAAAAACws/d07kNr5Qeqo/s640/IMG_1567.JPG

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-oVwUHSZUgYI/UIUr_N7K6_I/AAAAAAAACyg/zKBEZsrpoFA/s640/IMG_1568.JPG

Then we came back home and continued to cook our pie. We prepared filling...

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-0MMTySKmgo4/UIUpgVKE41I/AAAAAAAACxg/6ZKgeng8Gjk/s480/Photo%25286%2529.jpg

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-D7qi7bBWRTQ/UIUpgp4txiI/AAAAAAAACxk/thPoeqqRCEs/s480/Photo%25287%2529.jpg

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-5WLVuFS7KEA/UIUphKyqv1I/AAAAAAAACxs/sGB56wUnIpo/s480/Photo%25288%2529.jpg

Put it on the one part of a pastry and covered by another one. I liked to do holes in a pastry for air going.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-HSeYCwTK0ZM/UIUphnsbZwI/AAAAAAAACxw/KnGAGS_bAYs/s480/Photo%25289%2529.jpg

After all our efforts and after one hour of waiting, while it was in the oven... hurray! It was finally ready! And unexpectedly it was very tasty! :p

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-YntNqBmPJfQ/UIUpeOIJNRI/AAAAAAAACw8/rhov9pMLLSM/s480/Photo%252810%2529.jpg

That was my little story this day :rolleyes:
See you soon!

Park, Kiev, Ukraine - 13th October 2012

By: Katusha

Hello, Mommy! My host and I have two last updates for you before my depart to Germany. Last weeks were so rainy and foggy that we haven't any chance to go out and see something interesting. We were very sad about this, and tried to use every sunny hours to go for a walk.

This day while we were walking in the park, we saw a squirrel! There are many squirrels here, but this one was very brave and came very close to us! We didn't take this picture, but she even take a bit of a cookie from our hands! It was exciting!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-G66tPWgxJX0/UJeQ57_E1OI/AAAAAAAAC4Q/oIhvw__XYSQ/s640/IMG_1797.jpg

It was a long walk. And we were very hungry. This day we decided to visit a new vegetarian cafe near our house.

My host is not a vegetarian but she said everything there was very tasty. And I agree with her:)

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-5BH-l6f8aRc/UJeQ6NpnpkI/AAAAAAAAC4c/2itAwZOqpdQ/s640/IMG_1798.jpg

Hear you soon, bye-bye,
your Qah!
