The Mision, only one "s" in Spanish, encompassed at least two acres of space. It is being refurbished by the Catholic Church and the workers work for them. The most interesting person we met was Miroslav Mahler, originally from the Czech Republic and now residing in New York City. He is a sculptor. He was sketching on stone and will continue to sculpt these designs for the church building. He was a very outgoing and interesting fellow with whom to visit. Several masons were working in the area, as well as, many workers laboring away at the restoration. We happened to go out a close gate to the rear of the Mision and found the lodgings of the current Franciscan Community. There is a small chapel there which offers daily Mass. I got a few shots of it also.
Tonight we'll dine in the area and then tomorrow head north to visit the city. It was cloudy this morning, but it has since cleared and warmed up to where we have the AC on in the Coach. Not as hot as back in Basic Training, but the memories are still there.
We just got back from dinner at a Mexican place, Rosario's, about three miles from here. Lynnie had Chicken Rajas con Crema and I had pork tacos in Cascabel sauce. Both were great. Our waiter, Fernando was the slow and steady type with a good sense of humor. I've added a few photos of the venture...
