"First of all, last p-day we went paddle boating on a little lake. It was really similar to the paddle boats at the Lake Club at home, but so much more fun because my whole district was out there. We were just telling stories and laughing and the weather has finally been getting nice!!"
|This is the Budapest City Park Pond which has paddle |
boats in the summer and becomes the largest outdoor
skating rink in Eastern Europe in the winter.
Fresh Nővér and Behunin Nővér are excited about
going on the paddle boats!

"This week we also had Zone Conferences. The Buda Zone met on Tuesday and was good! ... because I live in Buda and right across from the Branch House [where the mission office is] I was there periodically on the two days that the other zones had their conferences so I got to see so many of my friends!!! I love them all so much!!!"
|This is the Buda Zone ... the one Fresh Nővér is in!|
"Then on Saturday we got such a treat, like literally a dream come true for me! We went to the Hungarian State Opera House and got to see the ballet Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs!!!!! I was seriously so so excited that I was like a little girl. I was happy and smiley the whole time I was watching it!!! ... I have wanted to go to a ballet for such a long time now and I got to do it here in Buda!!!"
|"It was a beautiful building!!!" The Opera House |
was built in neo-Renaissance style structure and
completed in 1884.
|It is considered one of the finest opera houses |
in the world. This is the central chandelier and
|The red seats and balconies that are inside |
the Opera House.

Tomorrow is transfer day and the "threesome" and the "golden district" are getting split up. Fresh Nővér said, "it will just be so different so that is really hard. But I know I will have fun and enjoy whatever happens."
