Outing with the Thompsons

We went on an outing near Essen with President Wesley and Sister Becky Thompson. We had lunch together at this Süd Tirol restaurant after visiting the Villa Hügel, built in 1870-73. It was the residence of the famous Krupp family for three generations. The complex included a residential wing and a guest wing, connected by a lobby, and could boast 269 bedrooms. The rich wooden floors, ceilings, tapestries, art, marble and view of the estate gardens are worth the visit.
