This is my simple photo journal. I like to take pictures and once a month or more, I load them onto this blog so that we can remember some of our family highlights.


First Day--Amazing Race

We got our suitcases loaded up and headed for the mission home where we received our 
"Amazing Race" assignment.
(For our stay --all the nearby mission zones -- rearranged their p-days so they could do an activity with our family ..this was the best part of the trip)

We had a race/competition through the city of Trujillo to capture photos of some of the highlights.
We were divided into teams and we each got paired up with a couple of missionaries.
The following pictures are from each of our stops.

We took taxis and the bus to get around.  

I have never experienced anything like driving in Peru....
there are no hard rules, not stop signs, no real lanes.
Survival of the fittest.....and Terry and Janet are not afraid.

This structure was built to welcome the Pope to Trujillo years ago.  
The majority of Peruvians are Catholic.

Probably the prettiest spot in the whole city is the cemetery.  
This is right next to the temple site.

Street Vendors

This is the largest mosaic in the world...beautiful.  It goes on for blocks.

Don't wake the Peruvian dog, he needs his beauty rest.

Our last stop and requirement was to eat a Mcflurry from McDonald's.
