Actually, it is not for 1000 days. It is just that 3 years times 365 days plus June 27 through June 30, 2008 equals 1098 days, and that is way too cumbersome to convert into a blog headline. Futhermore, our release date will not be determined until May or June of 2011. Therefore, 1000 Days sounded just about right, more or less. Having noted all that, we are humbled and thrilled (Pres. Uchtdorf would refer to the feeling as "joyfully overwhelmed") about having this marvelous opportunity to serve in La Mision Mexico Veracruz.

And if model homes aren't enough for you, some guy is building an ark on the banks of the Papaloapan River. The City of Alvarado is across the river and the Gulf of Mexico is less than half a mile to the right. We don't know why this ark is being built. I paid a security guard 10 pesos (about 78 cents) to let me sneak close enough to take this picture. I would make fun of the builder, but I know what happened to the last group of people who mocked an ark-builder. . . Click on the picture to zoom in.
