So this week's photos follow the theme of mountain climbing. For those who have been raised in Illinois, this is quite the unique experience. Here, if you see a "mountain", you assume that it is a landfill that has been in use for a number of years. One of the main reasons we send our children to BYU is so they will know what a mountain really looks like

In this picture, we are reminded that the missionaries are asked to wear their white shirts and ties even on P-day - even when climbing mountains.

The city in the background below is Santa Ana. I thought this picture might pique your curiosity so I extracted a little information about the city from Wikipedia.

Santa Ana is the second largest city in El Salvador, located 64 kilometers west of San Salvador, the capital city. Santa Ana has approximately 274,830 (2006) inhabitants and serves both as the capital of the department of Santa Ana and as the municipal seat for the surrounding municipality of the same name. For its administration the municipality is divided into 35 colonias (neighborhoods) and 318 small villages.

This must be the investigator family whose house is at the foot of the mountain.

Kevin also sent a movie of his companion and him on a sube bajo. This is a three-dimensional teeter-totter (i.e. you spin around while going up and down). Unfortunately, I have run out of time without figuring out why blog spot errors out while trying to upload it. It might have something to do with the fact that it is 15 MB.
