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.

Elder West Gets His Visa!
Elder West may hold the record for having the greatest number of cancelled itineraries! When his visa did not arrive in time for him to leave the Provo MTC and travel to the Madrid MTC, he stayed in Provo. When he still did not have a visa at the end of his 9 weeks, he was assigned to Montana Billings and was scheduled to fly to Billings, but at the last minute the visa came and he travelled to Madrid. We thought he was in Billings when we received an email from Madrid asking when we wanted him to travel to Barcelona! The answer was ASAP! We arrived back in Barcelona from Palma late on Friday and met Elder West at the train station early Saturday morning!
