This morning we met with one of the YSA to review one of their assignments.  It is a teaching project that she is about to implement in her teaching internship.

After the review, we caught the train from Museum station to Circular Quay. Then we walked along the Quay to the Opera House. My Fair Lady is playing in the Joan Sutherland Theatre and we were able to go with several of the other Senior Missionary couples to see the matinee.  It cost a medium fortune, but the sets were super and the performance was extra super.

Inside the Joan Sutherland Theatre before the musical began.  The screen had a scene from old London, but the bright lights would not let me get a good photo of it.

After the musical we went home since it was about 4:30 pm.  We missed the Halloween Party since I was still running a fever.  We heard the ward Halloween party was a lot of fun and the YSA had a great time.
