June 1st in Sigtuna

Monday, P-Day, June 1, 2015 and we take a little road trip with some of our missionaries from around Stockholm and visit a place called Sigtuna.  Sigtuna just happens to be one of the oldest communities in Sweden.  We had a great time visiting and seeing all of the very old buildings and houses.  Our group is standing in front of the very old city hall building, a two room structure.

 Looking down the very old, quaint streets of Sigtuna.

A very old farm house which has now been converted to a little cafe.

Elder Noso and Sister Bolton with a little Swedish friend.  A great contact, but she isn't real.

The group posing for a picture in Sigtuna.

More group pictures.  See if you can recognize your own missionary.
