|Elder Bradshaw was teaching Elder Bilanzich how to team rope.|
We were visiting members in Quiriza and had a little time to wait.
|These men from Quiriza are mining for gold. They are digging|
the soil from a hillside along the river and washing it down two
sloosh boxes. They pump water up to the top from the river
below. They have a claim and have found a little gold.
|This is our sidewalk in front of our apartment. The white metal|
door is our front door. The workers are getting ready to dig
it up for the gas pipe.
|We bought some Christmas lights for the Quiriza chapel. Ernesto|
Catacata and Diogenes Martinez put them up on the front of
the chapel. Diogenes is about 76 years old. He didn't hesitate
about climbing the ladder and getting on top of the roof.
|Isabel Martinez and her daughter Liliana help decorate with the|
Christmas lights. Everyone in the town enjoyed seeing the lights.
|This is the open Farmer's Market in Tupiza. They have it Monday,|
Thursday and Saturday. It is huge and a lot of people come
to buy and sell.
|Another view of the fresh produce part of the market. They|
set up small stores (booths) along about 8 blocks. You
can buy grocery items, cosmetics, clothing, kitchen items,
just about anythings to need.
|Hermana Patty and her two daughters and niece wanted to|
learn how to make sugar cookies. This is the table in our
kitchen. Hrm. Patty is a pastry chef. She makes beautiful cakes,
eclairs, cookies and doughnuts.
|Elder Avila, Bilanzich and Bradshaw were fixing the bell at the|
Quiriza Chapel. There are not many LDS church buildings
with a bell, but Quiriza has one.
