Fri. December 23, 2011

The weather is still nasty.  Although we couldn't see it because of the clouds, it was snowing up on the mountains behind us.  We are REALLY cold.

Our missionaries from Thessaloniki were supposed to arrive about 3:00 pm.  We were still waiting for them at 5:00 pm.  They finally arrived at 5:30 pm.   The traffic in Athens was soooo bad and they had a couple of wrong turns, it took that long.

The President took us all out to supper at the "Three Pigs"  (that's not really it's name, but the real name is so hard to say and because of the picture of a pig that they have on their sign outside, that's what they call it).  There was eight of us and we had a really good time.  I had chicken souvlaki which they served with fries and they were sooo good (big and soft and well cooked - not this and dry and crispy).  I think Brent had something like a shwarma , but he said it was nowhere near as good as "Jimmies" in Calgary.
