Day 12: Fireworks and Castles

This will be one of the more interesting yet!!

I went to bed last night and was HAPPILY awakened by fireworks going off over the town square! I'm note sure why there were happening, but I'm sure glad they were! It was pretty gorgeous and magical in every way.

We got up this morning, got ready for the day and went to church. It was - can you guess - warm!! The experience was nice - they have a little headphone system for English speakers so we could hear the meeting(s) in our native tongue :) Hooray!!

After church we ate at a Greek buffet. It was SO good. Rice and hummus and couscous and yummmm! And the best part was there were FREE REFILS! Waaaater. We've all been so dehydrated. I know because usually I GUZZLE water and have to use the loo all the time. And here I GUZZLE any chance I get - the guzzling is, however, vastly different than the usual ammount - but I don't have to use the loo NEARLY as much as usual. Which is odd. But the water and Greek food was great! That's all I'm really trying to say :)

The restaurant was just across from the Frederiksborg castle! We toured it for a couple hours in the afternoon and it was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Seriously. The whole palace was beautifully decorated and covered in art. My favorite thing to see were the (spelling?) Carl Block paintings! See them below!

In the evening, we played a fireside for a ward here in Copenhagen. It went well. And then I ate pizza for dinner.

The end!!!
