From 'Round the World

For the first time in the history of Afton Station, every single visitor today was from a foreign country!  They came from Torino Italy, Preston England, Zurich Switzerland, Madrid Spain, France, and two couples from Canada, one from Toronto and one from Ottawa.

The three fellows from France who will be playing in tomorrow night's concert came in to set up their equipment.  Everyone is invited for the free concert which even comes with a free dinner!  This is all compliments of David and his wife Sylvie, whose brother is one of the musicians.  Come one, come all!  It will begin around 6 p.m. and I'm sure the band members would appreciate a nice big audience.

Betty, Marlene, and Robin all helped out at various times today as we greeted 17 visitors.

This couple from Torino, Italy were clearly having a great time on their Route 66 holiday.
Likewise this couple from Toronto, Canada.   Despite temperatures above 100 today, all of our visitors remained upbeat and enthusiastic.  I think a few breaths of our air conditioned atmosphere pleased all of them.
