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.

Missionaries as Art

The City of Tarragona initiated an art program this year for the city bus station - every three months they have a new exhibit that travelers can admire while waiting for their bus.

A few weeks ago, Elders Nasaeth and Keller had been in Tarragona doing companion exchanges, and when they were in the bus station on their way home a photographer was  taking formal pictures of people in the station, so they got in line and took their turn posing.

The resulting photograph is the lead piece in the current exhibition! Elders Close and Anstensen were in the bus station this morning, and to their great surprise saw a large photograph of their fellow missionaries. Not only is it the central photo in the show, it is the icon of the show, appearing as the cover photo in the publicitity for the show. And for good reason: have you ever seen such good looking young men?!

For more info, you can visit the City of Tarragona and see the Elders on the web!
