Scarry times in Argentina.

This restaurant was located across the street from our pension. During one of the government coo's, several crimes were committed very close to us. Hermana Freeman was one of my hardest working comps and a great teacher. She and I were mugged at gunpoint after this bombing. She basically put her life at risk refusing to listen to the two guys that were robbing her and came to save me from the grasp of a man. One of those mission stories that you don't write home about but one that teaches you the importance of obedience! I should mention that Hermana Freeman could also outride anyone on a bike! She had once trained to be an Olympic swimmer and gave it up to join the Church! I will always be grateful to her for all she taught me.

This bombed out building looks a bit like your tornado damage Whitney!
