The city that I'm in is Sopron! My companion is Sister Sexton and she is absolutely amazing! I'll talk about this more later!
So when we got to the Salt Lake City Airport we got to eat lunch, which Sister Hawks and I had Cafe Rio, probably one of the most brilliant ideas of the day. After we finished lunch we called and talked to our families. That was awesome. Even though we had just called a week earlier, for Mother's Day, I will always take the opportunity to talk to my parents again. It was great to hear their voices and to hear what is going on back at home. While I was talking to my mom, I was told that we were about to board the plane, so I said my goodbye and on the plane we went.
I had never seen an international plane before. Those suckers are huge! It doesn't look too big from the outside, but you go inside and you're told to go find your seat and it feels like you're walking down a never-ending aisle to find your seat. I finally found my seat, and it felt like the aisle was never-ending because I was pretty much at the very back. Anyway, I sat next to a lady who lives in Orange County, California but was heading to Paris because that is where she is from and where her family lives. I tried making small talk with her, we talked for a bit, but I could kind of tell that she didn't want to chat so I just slowly backed myself out of the conversation. All was good. One of the Elders in my district, Watson Elder was sitting right across from me. I swear he was going to hand out a Book of Mormon right then and there before the plane even began to leave. I admired the way he was friendly to everyone and just had nice conversations with them. Someday, I'll be able to do that. Ha! Hopefully soon!
When we arrived in Paris, the humidity almost killed me. Not going to lie, it was SO INCREDIBLY hot! After we had to go up some escalators and down some esclators and up some escalotrs and down some escalators, about five times, I felt absolutely disgusting! We finally got to our gate and boarded another bus to take us to the airport terminal. I made it past security fine and then went through the border patrol place where they check your passports. I got my very first stamp on my passport, so that's pretty sweet! We then boarded our next plane to complete the last leg of our journey.
