The flowers are so beautiful here in Colombia. Leaving Bogota the other day, we saw two people on this motorcycle carying three large sprays of flowers. The lucky people that are going to receive them.
Villa de Leyve is around 500 years old and it is an old Colonial pueblo. We found this site where one can see how the walls were constructed. President Hacking wanted one of the old bottles, but didn´t want to go to jail while getting it out, so we left it there.
No President Waddel, second counselor in the area presidency, is not standing on stilts. He and Nidia, our maid, are posing for a photo. As one can see, he is very tall and Nidia is short. He came to thank us and wish us well after the mission. He is North American.
I have chosen the title "Hermona Patrona" because my husband has for many years affectionately called me La Patrona. In Spanish the word jefa means "she who is the boss". My husband, however, says that the word patrona refers to "she who commands". In other words, La Patrona is more powerful than La Jefa. Because we are serving on a mission, he now calls me "Hermana Patrona."
