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.

Llegada - One New Angel Arrives

We lost nine seasoned Elders, but gained one incredible Hermana: Hna. Soderquist! Her new companion, Hna. Rodriquez, went with us to the train station to pick up Hna. Soderquist who arrived Tuesday morning on the 11:22 AVE from Madrid.

At the station: Elders Keller and Sommerfeldt,
Pte and Hna Hinckley,
Hnas Soderquist and Rodriquez

Eager to get started!

At Montjuic. Welcome to Barcelona!


  1. We are happy that Hma Soderquist arrived safely and had such a wonderful welcome. We think we sent you our best.
    With Love, (her Grandpa) Robert Lewis
