Our good friends the Bowlers and us will be going to San Pedro de Atacama in northern Chile in August for a week. It has many geological formations, geyers, lakes etc all at 10-14,000 feet high. Will have our prescription for altitude sickness pills filled for sure. I also served as a missionary in Calama where we will stay for 3 nights and go to one of the largest open copper mines in the word in Chuquimata. The temple will close for 2 weeks so we will have 1 week to rest and relax as well.
On Saturday after the temple shift was over we took Eduardo and Soledad Rojas to lunch at the La Hacienda restaurant for lunch. They work on the Saturday morning shift. He actually is the shift coordinator. We had a great time.

On Sunday we went to stake conference in San Antonio with Gary and Debbie Davis. Gary and I served there as missionaries and have very close friends there. We took the opportunity to visit our close friend Rodolfo Acevedo's gravesite. Very touching for all of us. Leonardo Santis took us there in his club cab pick up. After we went to his home for lunch. He has a recording studio and is a professional musician. So we took a moment to look at that. Millie and Debbie want to go see his group "Magic Band" play. Search youtube for Magic Band, Drive is the song posted.
