Athens Youth Madrid Temple Trip

Ever since arriving here the temple has influenced our approach to everything. We so wanted the youth in Athens to have temple experiences. We hope this event will not be a one off. Watch the video, it tells the story, at least in part.

Goliath v Athens Seminary Class

Goliath had some worthy adversaries, the Athens Seminary class.

Market Day

Just around the corner from our apartment, every Monday, is a street market. It must be at least a mile long. For those who prefer the hustle and bustle of it to the serene, hygienic, air conditioned simplicity of the supermarket, I suppose it is a kind of heaven.... This is the fresh food end. Clothing and hardware is across the roundabout and down the hill. So far Sister Petchey has not yet been down the hill....shhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

PS The street musicians are not part of the market, I just love street music and these guys were good so they provide the background music. They were in Syntagma Square.
