Today we went on an outing with the missionaries in our zone to Kourion.  It is about 90 minutes from Nicosia and is the site of some ancient (100 AD) ruins.  The missionaries loved the break from their regular schedule and the weather and sites were beautiful.

This is an amphitheater that is actually still used at times.  It is one that when you stand in a certain spot at the bottom and just speak in a normal voice you can hear it everywhere in the theater.

These are views of the Mediterranean Sea - so incredibly beautiful.  The restaurant shown here is the same one we ate at when we came here two years ago with the Drakes.

Some of the remains of Apollo's temple.

The sisters.

The elders - enough said.

The remains of an alter.

This is called the sacred road leading to Apollo's temple.

Apollo & his wife at the end of the sacred road!?!?!

All in all it was a really good day.  We went back to Limassol and had lunch.  It is heartwarming to watch these missionaries interact with each other and to get to know them better.  They are so good!!!  We were tired but happy when we arrived back to our 'flat.'
