|This a view of the road from Cochabamba to Tupiza. I took|
it out the window of the double decked bus we rode back
to Tupiza after our temple trip in January.
|Two of the three parrots that live by our parking garage in|
Tupiza. They have their wings clipped so they can not
fly. The third bird flies around town. They are noisy birds.
|We had three days and nights with heavy rain in Tupiza. It washed|
out this bridge where the train track runs. This is where we
had our Christams Party with the missionaries. You can
see part of the track laying on the left side of the picture.
|Some more pictures of how the train track was washed away.|
Some fields and farms where also damaged in the storm.
|This is the field of corn we helped plant in the spring. The storm|
made the river rise and washed the bottom half of the corn field away.
The farmers also lost their cement irrigation ditch.
|This is Lloyd washing our clothes in the sink on the top balcony|
of our apartment. There was no warm water. So we washed
all our clothes in cold. No washing machines or dryers in
|We took a P-day trip in LaQuiaca, Argentina with the missionaries.|
We had a special lunch at a nice restaurant..
|While we were shopping I saw this little guy playing in the dirt.|
All he has on is this long shirt and hat.
|Staci was baptized on her 9th birthday. Her father is not a member|
and when he asked her what she wanted for her birthday. She told
him she wanted to be baptized.
|Lloyd and I with our landlady Teresa Von Boeck in the patio area|
of our apartment in Tupiza. We lived on the second floor.
|Teresa was good cook. She taught me how to make merengues|
cookies. This is in her kitchen when we were finished baking them.
|When it rains in Bolivia the water can become a small river running|
down the street. I dared put my feet in this dirty water for this picture.
This is right by our apartment.
|President Huarachi and his wife came by to visit us.|
He is the District Preisdent in Tupiza.
|This is Maria Elizabeth Moraels Burgos. We called here Ellie.|
She came of wednesday afternoons and did our laundry for us.
She washed sheets, towels and white shirts.
