Monday, July 30

Hello Family and Friends (old and new),
We are sitting down to dinner after a very full day of touring the amazing city of Budapest. We have to keep pinching ourselves to remember what a privilege it is to be here and experience these sights. Our tour bus picked us up at our hotel this morning and took us on a three hour tour of the most famous places in the city:  Heroes Square, Mathias church, Statue of Liberty, Parliament, Fishermans Bastion, Museum of Fine Art, Chain Bridge, Castle District, Margaret Island,Gellert Hill,The Opera house, and a natural hot spring spa which I am looking forward to revisiting (hint hint Curt). We were also lucky enough to take a cruise on the Danube River. For me this was very enjoyable because you could see many of the famous sights I mentioned before but from the comfort of a breezy river cruise (on the DANUBE RIVER!!!!!).
All in all, it was a great day and I think we all look forward to being home and seeing our loved ones tomorrow.
Thanks so much to all of you in our congregation who made this trip possible for our team this year. Just based on the comments from the Slovakian Team I think the work that the kids did in the English camp was very valuable and much appreciated.
