Don't know what the celebration is, but we heard a band coming down the street.  By the time I got my camera, they were about gone.  This is a picture out of our apartment window (tinted green).  Anyway, this happens a lot and the traffic just follows along behind at a slow pace.

We walked to the store one day and saw this little boy with his "guitar" singing at the top of his lungs.  Notice the little cup and teddy bear in front of him. Of course, we gave him some money and on the way back from the store asked if we could take his picture.  After the picture, we gave him some more money.  Cute little guy!  His mother and another brother were  begging a little ways down the street.

Even got a smile with this one.

This is Hermana Cabrera and her son, Rodrigo - now Elder Guiterrez.  He is leaving today for his mission in Bahia Blanca, Argentina.  That is where Kevin served his mission, but it is really small now.  Anyway, we have spent a lot of time with this family, Christmas Eve and nearly every Saturday for lunch.  Patricia is a single mom, even though the Dad is involved with the children, and is a lawyer.  Elder Guiterrez was the mission leader in our "barrio" for a while and has gone to "citas" with us and taught the Gospel.  He will be a good missionary.

This is Rodrigo with some of his family, most are not members of the Church.  Monday night for family home evening, we had a ward meeting.  The Stake President spoke, the bishop and then before Rodrigo was set apart, anyone who wanted to hug him was allowed to do so because after the setting apart, he would no longer be able to hug the girls.  After he was set apart, he shared his testimony and several others in the congregation were asked if they wanted to speak.  Elder Dibb took a few minutes to talk to them and shared his testimony.  It was a nice meeting.  Then we all had treats.  Nothing else has happened this week as we have been stuck in our apartment.  Elder Dibb has been sick for over a week and Sister Dibb has a bit of a cold as well.  Hopefully we will be able to
