Monday night - Anya (my host sister from Ukraine) texted me and said she wanted to visit me, along with her friend Sophia. I didn't realize that she has been in Chicago for a while already! So - Monday evening after work, Anya and her friend met Lauren and me at the blue line near our place. We showed them our (tiny) studio, offered them some (strong) ice tea (too much tea, not enough sugar), then went for a walk around the neighborhood. Anya was shy and didn't want her picture taken - but she's the one in the background! I told them I would try to have lunch with them the next day during my break at Moody.
