Sunday: We went to the Mission San Xavier del Bac this morning for the 11:00 mass. The Mission is on the Tohono O'odham reservation just south of Tucson. It was built in 1692 by Father Kino. There are 82 angles and 100 saints depicted either in sculpture or paint. We have been to some amazing missions during our travels,in fact we seek them out,but nothing quite as grand as this.
In the large courtyard in front of the church, a group of Indians had set up booths to sell food. We had a great lunch of Indian Tacos with green chili sauce. Another truly authentic taste of the local cuisine.
While traveling through the reservation, we have come across a number of cemeteries. They are the most colorful we have ever seen.
