The lighthouse at Formentor, Mallorca

The background shows sidewalk tiles - "rajoles" - that pave the sidewalks throughout Barcelona. They were designed by architect Puig i Cadafalch for the entryway of a home. Since 1915, they have been used by the city to pave sidewalks, and have become emblematic of the city. One of the city's most famous chocolatiers, Enric Rovira, produces chocolate bars in the shape and design of these tiles.

Hna. Montes de Oca Arrives!

It's true that we lost several experienced missionaries during the week, but as always, we were not left destitute - we received a new powerhouse missionary fresh from the Madrid MTC: Hna. Montes de Oca (who actually spent most of her life in Okinawa - her father was in the Marine Corps).

At the airport with Elder Jensen (who recently returned to Barcelona to serve as a new Assistant)

Getting ready to head to the train station - Hna. Montes de Oca has been assigned to Murcia with Hna. Bowen and they are already setting the place on fire!
