I was out of Daren's reach by the time we made it to the curb.....this is Daren making sure that Andrea knows he loves her and to make sure she won't miss him too much! From here I took a taxi to church and the rest of the fam headed to the airport. This was my least favorite part of the trip. As always happens whenever a trip ends, I am in a car alone and it tears me apart. I am so lucky to have such a supportive family!!!
I found my way to church....blessed familiarity. It was fantastic to hear church in spanish. Reminded me so much of church on my mission. People were really friendly. Probably 10 people at least welcomed me ( I need to learn from that). Other similarities to Chile.... started late, ended late, and in Relief Society they didn't announce an activity they planned it as a group complete with people yelling their food preferences, location ideas and times across the room too. It was great to remember. There was a very sweet spirit there. Everyone who bore testimony talked about their love of Christ and gratitude for His restored gosple..which testimony I share. It was great to feel that familiar spirit here in Spain.
I was hoping the fountains at the MNAC would be showing again tonight so I headed down to catch the show. No luck....I guess summer ended October 1st. There were tons of locals and visitors out though and I listened to a really great guitar player and enjoyed the vistas (Dad you would have been proud). Not my favorite day of travel, mostly missing good company, but tomorrow will be better since I will be busy seeing Madrid!
