Happy 4th of July

Can you believe it - they don't celebrate July 4th in India.  Apparently the US Embassy celebrated it on June 30th right after we got here, but otherwise yesterday went on usual.  It was P-Day for the mission and the Assistants to the President (APs) planned a great bowling activity.  Not far from our apartment (I'd judge it to be about 3 miles), there is a large indoor mall and a very nice bowling alley.  Everyone had a good time.  Elder Stevens (surprisingly) impressed them with his bowling skills - with the high score of 179.  Now no one wants to bring him bowling again.  Afterwards everyone went to lunch at their favorite location.  We followed the young elders to TGI Fridays, and other than taking about an hour to get our food, it was pretty good.  I was going to put some great pics of the bowling here, but they didn't transfer to my computer from the camera.  Probably user error, but I'm going to blame the camera.

We spent the afternoon learning more new things at the mission office and finding some "treasurers" in the cabinets.  One was an interesting book on the start-up of the mission 5 years ago, with pictures of the first missionaries and the set-up of the office we are now in (and will be vacating in a few months).
