Respect your Elders

20140121_135112 (658x1024)

Finally had a camera when I bumped into a couple of cycling subjects I have been looking for around town. Locking up outside Tydemans on Bore Street were Elder Von Scheel from Denmark and Elder Ross from Canada, a familiar sight riding around. They are from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on Purcell Avenue near where I live. You may have seen them or other elders before. I first chatted to one a few years ago. They are replaced every few months by another young man on a two year mission away from their family, doing the work of their church in Britain. Over the years I have met people from South Africa, Europe and North America doing this. I always pass the time of day, never talk religion, but try to be friendly and find out why they do what they do. Next on my cycling list is to get a snap of a PCSO. I spoke to one the other day who told me they were getting new bikes soon. Keep an eye out.
