from England!

We are currently in Marlborough, England. We are staying at the Merlin Hotel Bed and Breakfast...named for the Merlin, who is supposed to be buried here. We just ate dinner at a pub sort of restaurant in the town. We are enjoying our mini-holiday in the UK on our way home!

I'll describe some sites we've seen, but first let me show two last Malawi pictures. The last few days were full of goodbyes. On Saturday night, we went with a LOT of other ABC missionaries to Delhi Dar Baar, a local Indian restaurant, for a nice meal out.

Because I know I have Brookhaven people reading this blog, here are some Brookhavenites, enjoying Malawi:

Becca and Emily, two of my favorite people at ABC! I'm going to miss these guys. We got to fly to Jo'burg with Josh and Emily (they are going to be back next year, they are just going home for the summer), which was great. But we both (by we, I mean Emily and I) started crying when we said goodbye in the Jo'burg airport.

Our first day here, we were exhausted! We both slept VERY little on the plane ride home. But we did drive to Wales to see Tintern Abbey. Here you can see the enormity of these Abbey ruins.

Isn't it beautiful?

We spent last night in Wells, England, at a B&B that let us look out onto the Cathedral Green (they have a old, famous Cathedral in Wells).

Today, we went to Blaise Castle. We took some video of our walk up to it for my grandparents, who are Blaises. I can't wait to tell them all about it. We are exhausted, so this is all I will write! We will be home soon!
