Peace and Quiet

Well MTS is now over, the place is empty and quiet, kinda lonely but it's nice to now wake up to birds chirping rather than toilets flushing. Today was our day off so we headed into Budapest. It was the first day in 2 months that we've been alone. A warm spring feeling day, all the snow is melting and no need to lug our big jackets through the city. We did alot of walking, seeing the sights meandering through the parks getting lost and finding better stuff in the midst. The pic of us sitting was taken at this really cool castle, moat and all. Neat big chairs to sit back and soak in some sun. Budapest is such a interesting city filled with all sorts of sights but also hidden gems. We found a coffee shop and at first felt guilty as it wasn't very Hungarian but had great people watching leather chairs, we couldn't refuse so we became window mannequins for alwhile, so interesting to soak in all the styles both young and old, fur is in for the older crowd and tucking your pants into your high leather boots is in for the young. Plus huge, half covering your face sunglasses. The last pic is of a kinda freaky grim reaper ish statue that we came across,apparently its called the anonymous man. its dedicated to the man who wrote down the history of hungary, all i gotta say is i hope my name aint in his book, scared he's gonna come chasing after us. the rest of the week is filled with orientation meetings with the hungary leader and team, tomorrow we head back to ofalu to attend a bible study and share our testimony and hopefully this weekend we'll head out to balaton to meet the local pastors and see the area.

Who is the photographer between the two of you? I like some of the shots you take, the coffee mug, between the slats of the bench. One of you has great ideas!! It sounds so great what you are doing. Wow! What an experience.
