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.

On Saturday night we went down to the office to call out the transfer changes to missionaries. In the office lobby we met a missionary who served here nearly 15 years ago and was in Spain on business. It was an emotional visit for him, and he reminded the Assistants that when they return home, they will discover that not everyone has the same mission experience as missionaries in the Spain Barcelona Mission.
