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.

The Zempoala Ruins are in a town called Zempoala. Clever how they did that. The pueblo is built on the ruins. There are ruins all over town. Some are behind fences, some are not. They date to the late Olmec period, maybe about 1500 years before the Spanish arrived. It was a city of 20-30,000 people. The ruins are totally restored in this area shown and they allow you to go up on a couple of them.
