A Visit to Hunedoara Castle

We have a zone conference in Bucharest next week, and Elder Kent F. Richards is going to be speaking to us.  You probably know him, he was director of Surgery at LDS Hospital or something like that.  Should be cool, we are leaving on Tuesday to go down for that. And yes, there is a mission area in Brasov.  We have a senior couple there, 2 sisters, and 2 Elders. 

Hunedoara Castle
Our castle visit was pretty cool.  We got on the bus in Sibiu at 5:30 in the morning and rode for about 3 hours to Deva, where we met the rest of the missionaries in our Zone from Cluj and Deva.  We rode another bus for about 20 minutes out to Hunedoara where the castle is. It is way cool, I'll get some pictures sent of it.  We hungout there for awhile, ate some pizza for lunch then we headed back to Deva and played cards and ping pong at the church for a bit.  Then some of us went to the old fortress on top of a mountain in the middle of Deva. It's pretty small, but it has an awesome view of Deva.  And it's mostly destroyed, apparently an ammunition explosion blew up most of it like a bazillion years ago.  It's mostly ruins now, but it was still cool.  We rode this tram car thing to the top instead of hiking. We went back to the church, then caught the bus back to Sibiu.  It was a super long day, but it was fun.  Hunedoara is way pretty.  Google Seach "Deva Sign on the mountain" they have a sign like the
Hollywood sign on the mountain, but it says Deva.

The Fortress (Cetate in Romanian) at Deva
If you want to look up the real Hotel Transylvania, it exists. It's in a town called Sighişoara.  A few hours north-east of Sibiu.  I haven't been there, but I want to, and my companion was there last transfer, and said it was awesome.  Check it out.

It was kind of a weird week, since we changed p-day and such.  So we
didn't teach very many lessons, only 2 I  think, but it was good.  We
are back on track for this week. That's about everything exciting that
