Novgorod Is Old

We took our daughter to Russia this summer; it's where she's from. Here's a small church in Novgorod which I thought was exceptionally nice, and a mural on the wall of the disabled children's center/part-time tourist hostel where we stayed. Novgorod means "new city," yet it's the oldest city in Russia. I brought home sand from the banks of the Volkhov River, and a stone for AnnMarie.
