Lots of kids here - very good for a change, after all the Besarabka drunks.
A 10-year-old boy has noted today that I'm taller than Mishah, asked me how old I am, I told him to try to guess, he said I was 20 or so, and for some reason I'm still wondering: for someone his age, 20 is very old or not really? A very nice 11-year-old girl who looks after all the little ones here said her mother's 33. A year older than I am. The boy also asked about our natsionalnost - not sure whether he meant ethnicity, or citizenship, or both. Feels weird.
