Jesuit Missions in Paraguay
Have you seen The Mission, with Liam Neeson and Robert De Niro? You gotta get yourself out to Blockbuster--uh, Netflix--and rent a copy if you haven't. The last time I watched this tragic movie, it was a bootleg copy filmed on someone's cell phone, complete with jiggles and folks getting up for popcorn. But this time, I saw a good copy, and I watched it just a couple of days after we visited a couple of the historic places the movie is based on. Tough to sit through.
