On the way out to an appointment, we had to show our new elder Szabo the monument commemorating the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 because of the famous Sopron Picnic where hundreds of east Germans broke through the border fence to freedom in Austria. Even though elder Szabo is Hungarian from a nearby town, he had never heard of it. That's elder Szabo in the white shirt. Note the sunlight starting to break through the darkness.
In Hungary, they let you climb these things. The dark grey stone left of elder Olson in the middle is a piece of the Berlin Wall, like the 40 pounds we carried home after we lived here in Pecs in 1990. Elder Wright is on the right.
