Argentina Day 2

Feb 12,2011

After eating breakfast, we went on a 45 minute train ride to view some of the areas that Weston served in. (Weston served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints back in 1998-2000)

The boys had been excited to ride a train from the very beginning of the trip. They are so into Thomas the Train. Hunter sat by the window on the same seat as Weston and I and Walter sat by the window with Mac and Sharman. The first little town that we stopped in was Malaver. Weston wanted to show us one of the house/apartments that he had lived in. He wasn't sure if he showed us the right place, but he was pretty sure. Though we weren't able to go in, it was still nice to walk on the streets that at one point Weston walked on as a young missionary.

We hopped back on the train and then went to Villa Ballester to see one of the church/wards that Weston attended.

We were able to go inside and look around.

I know that Sharman and Mac were super excited to see some of the areas that Weston served in. We went to a small market to buy some snacks and then back on the train to Buenos Aires.

Weston had planned for us to take a tour of the Palacio Barolo, which turned out to be a really cool office building. It was 20 or so floors. We took the elevator up to the 14th floor and then walked up the stairs to the top. On the top was a glass room with a signal light.

After the tour we took a taxi to Recoleta because they were having a handi-craft fair. I was able to buy a small nativity

For dinner we went out to a BBQ/Grill place. There was so much meat, there was just no way we could eat it all.

Sue, what an awesome trip! My stepdad was born in Cordoba, Argentina! His grandparents, the Valentichs were some of the first members in their area. Looks like you guys had a great time!
