Everything grows here.

  1. Beautiful fan palms like this on the Santo Domingo Temple grounds are only one variety of vegetation growing here that we never see in Utah.
  2. Children grow here--more children than we ever saw in New Jersey or in Spain--or even in Utah! They are beautiful children who have so little but seem so happy-- and I wonder about their future.
  3. It is growing more hot and humid here--more than any other place we've been.
  4. And sadly, the garbage is growing here--much more than we've seen in any other place. I don't know where they collect all the garbage I see thrown on the streets, empty lots, and byways. No amount of recycling in the US can make an iota of difference in the long run.
