|Usually on Mondays we wash our pickup in the River|
We had extra help from all the missionaries this day!
|There are always people at the river washing their clothes|
There are very few washers and dryers in this city
|This is a narrow passage between the mountains.|
Lloyd said they use to ride their horses through one
somewhat like this one on their way to get supplies in Tupiza.

|We found this antique iron at Hermana Luisa's home.|
You fill the bottom with hot coals and iron. I wanted to
bring it home, but it weighed too much.
|We took the Missionaries to visit and teach the Condoris. Elvis and Mayra|
had fun jump roping with them. This in their front yard.
|Rosaria (Elvis and Mayra's mother) gave us a bowl of boiled|
corn called mote with a thick slice of goat cheese. This is
part of her kitchen where she had a fire and cooked the corn.
|This is Rosaria in her kitchen. She is dishing up the mote. The floor|
is hard dirt and she is dishing out of black clay pot. Somewhat like
a dutch oven.
|The two oldest sisters did most of the cooking. They didn't always|
agree. But they did a good job cooking.
We are in the back yard of
an investigator named Virginia.
|You can see the small fire underneath the griddle. They|
kept the griddle just the right temperature for cooking.
|This is the whole group of Relief Society ladies that came.|
They also served hot rice milk. It was like rice pudding with
a lot of milk. We drank it from cups. The tortillas and rice milk
were very good.
|This is a very different looking building in Tupiza. They|
are still working on it. There is a small restaurant on the
first floor. It looks like it belongs in Russia not South America.
|This is Hermana Patty. She is a member of the church. She makes a living|
for her family by making cakes, doughnuts and different pastries.
|Our land lady, Theresa. has a row of beautiful flowers.|
They have been blooming the whole time we have been here.
