July 3, 2013 Wednesday – Temple Square

The Temple Square is the Mecca of Mormonism. Anything you want to know about Mormonism you can find it in Temple Square, in any language you want. We saw docents in just about every major language – their name tags show the flag of the country of the language they speak.

Most memorable:

  • Life-size scenes from the Bible including the Good Samaritan with the one who was beaten by robbers. I wouldn’t want to be in the building at night when those figures could come to life!¬†
  • The Temple is not as big as it looks in pictures.
  • The most delicious turkey pot pie at the Cafe in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building.

Don’t worry, I did not convert.

I felt sad checking out of the Plaza Hotel after 3 comfortable nights there, but it’s time to move on.

In case if you’re in SLC and wondering if it’s worthwhile to detour to Taffy Town, my advice is Yes.¬†While we couldn’t take a tour (have to be booked in advance and only on certain days), we bought a good sample of over 40 flavors of taffy.

Dinner: Smashburger. Smash sweet potato fries were very good.

Our day has not ended…cliffhanger…

Day 8 to be continued

    I’m finally getting caught up on all my RSS feeds since vacation haha. The parable of the Good Samaritan is a heavy one. I have never heard of Smashburger but after checking out their website I would definitely like to try it!
