A New Obsession & Town Tour

This weekend we went camping with a local (English speaking) church's youth group. It was cold, fun, encouraging....lots of fabulous things. But most of all, it was enlightening....because I discovered the single greatest thing about Europe:

This picture just doesn't do it justice. They are little chocolate cereal things filled with soft chocolately, nutella-like goodness in the middle and they make my heart sing. Since it was so cold, I conveniently pretended like I don't understand European nutrition facts (or that "sucre" means sugar....) and ate about half a box of this stuff. It is especially amazing around a campfire.

Here are some pictures we took last week from all around the town of Burtigny:

 David and Toffee. Her family just moved here from South Africa and they are all incredibly awesome. Toffee is just like Colby except shorter and she actually listens.


The only restaurant in town

 A family in our DTS is staying in the top 2 levels of this building but the bottom is the weight room, for those of us who are obsessed with working out. Hooray!

One of the many town fountains.

The town clock

I have no idea what this place is, but it looks nice, right?


The city church, some horses and a few mountains.

The road into Burtigny

If you look really close (or click on the picture - it gets bigger), you can see the mountain tops. This is heading out of Burtigny and looking towards lake Geneva and the mountains are the French Alps.

The YWAM base

Crazy cows on the way to the camping trip

There are a lot of camping pictures from this weekend, too but they'll have to wait for another day. The suspense is rough, I know...
