Boca Sur

Travis has been in Chile for more than three weeks now. He is serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Boca Sur which is basically a suburb of Concepciรณn. From what we can discern, it is on the coast near the southern mouth of the Bio Bio River, hence the name Boca Sur or "south mouth". His companion is Elder L. from Texas.
Evidently, Boca Sur is the most dangerous city in his mission. Drugs, trash, and flea-ridden dogs abound. However, he says the church members are very kind and feed them lunch almost every day.
They live in the top floor of the blue apartment building.
They share their apartment with another set of missionaries.
I'll let the rest of the photos speak for themselves.

So many colorful photos!! Hopefully he'll be just fine in the more dangerous area and get it over with early in his mission. :) Hope you aren't too worried about him, but we moms always worry.

It looks like Chile 20 years ago.

I actually really like the graffiti and murals. He is sending you fantastically detailed photos! Lucky you! We are praying for his safety and health, too.
