this is the view from a cathedral tower in the big city of santa cruz. the city put up a big screen where the world cup is projected. it is really fun to be here for the 'mundial.' it's a much bigger deal here than in the US.
'ahoringa' is bolivian for 'ahorita,' which is spanish for 'right now.' the other day i thought i was clever during family home evening with the sanchez family, and when someone asked me a question i very loudly and emphatically replied 'ahoringo.' i had the wrong vowel ending- everyone laughed and i remained the 'tall white foreigner in the REI pants who wears the same shirt everyday' (pictured above).
