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.

This was the temperature in Minatitlán that afternoon, May 29th--normal.

This is the ice delivery method. The really big blocks had just been off-loaded from a semi. Why do they put the cold ice under hot, black visquine? We don't know either.

The young man chipped off a chunk for the man with the red cap. The man with the red cap put it in his wheelbarrow and is probably delivering it to his little snow cone business. He got his hat for free at a political stuff hand out and he theoretically supported the guy with the red 17-story long banner on the building you saw in an earlier post. He probably won thanks to Snow Cone Man. The election was actually so close they did a recount before declaring a winner.
