Austria is absolutely beautiful. The Lord is surprising us every day with different places to see His creation. Today was full of going to the Melk Abbey (Sorry if someone has already posted about this!), where the Chapel was amazing. The sanctuary was plated with 24 karat gold-everything was ornate. The library was the same one Disney used to animate the library in Beauty and the Beast. Some of the manuscripts dating back to the 1000-1100′s. It’s so crazy to see things that have survived for such a long time. The library is filled with books from floor to ceiling. Ironically some of them are fake.
There’s so much to learn here. It was great being with our host families. It gives us so much to learn about, but we are on our own here in Austria.
Today we went to the cathedral in Salzburg. It’s amazing. I can’t believe we are singing there. People came to tears when we sang in our rehearsal today.
And for some reason many Koreans think we are famous…they kept taking pictures of us or getting right in front of us and getting their picture taken.
I’m sure more will come about Salzburg tomorrow!
