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.

At the far north end of the malecon this main street terminates at a cross road which leads to a large tourist, hotel, and restaurtant district near the Mexican Naval Headquarters. Wierd, isn't it, that they would have that huge grey wall sitting at the end of this picturesque area.

Well, it isn't a wall at all. It is a huge grey ship. The second picture is taken from a different angle. Same boat. This odd-shaped vessel is said to carry up to 3,000 cars which are partially constructed. They are shipped in from Volvo, GM, Ford, Volkswagen, and others, to Mexico. From the port they are trucked to plants where assembly is completed and then they are shipped or trucked to distributors and dealers. Cheap labor? Must be.
