Kazakhstan Reunion
The best part of being at the Dresslers home was getting to have an all-out Kazakhstan Reunion. Not only did we see Jesse, Jen and Anelle, but we also got to see our translator from Kaz, Dinara, and Jen's parents who visited us in Kazakhstan. In addition, we also got to meet Jesse's family for the first time.
