I had a very memorable and wonderful experience in Russia, spending the month in Yaroslavl, spending time each day with children in an orphanage, and working through Cross Cultural Solutions. CCS through the director and translators took care of whatever I needed, providing just enough structure and flexibility. The children were unforgettable, I can still see some of them in my minds eye as I write this 10 years after being there with them. They were appreciative, good humored, curious, loving, intelligent and just a pleasure to be around most of the time. Seeing a bit of Russia was a trip to a distinct, fascinating place. The citizens I met there were soulful, warm, welcoming and curious. To this day I still have contacts and friends I met there. Extremely worthwhile trip.
