A lot more hills. Woot. And not so woot... depends on how I'm feeling that day. Lots of awesome people and moto taxis. The ward [local Mormon congregation] here is HUGE. There's like 200 people that come every week which is actually rather sad because there are over 900 members. Yep. We've been visiting a lot of less actives lately.
I'm also REgetting used to being starred at, and all the pointing and wide eyes. A white person around these parts is a VERY rare thing. A white GIRL around these parts is unheard of. The other day a whole bus full of people rubber-necked to get a good look at the white girl. We just laughed.
Has a balcony. A view. And a microwave. WHAT. Still haven't used it yet. I have forgotten how. It's all just too fancy, I can hardly handle it. Also, this house never runs out of water. Double what. And it has a water heater. Huh? and a shower head that works. And a toilet that flushes and a closet. Basically I live in paradise now.
NEW COMP [companion]
I am once again back with a Mexican and it feels so good! Hermana Rivas is from a state called Cuahuila. She is a VERY sincere and loving person. We are going to accomplish a lot in this area, I can just feel it. Two hard working and animated missionaries and a God that answers prayers is just a perfect recipe for success.
A short but sweet letter this week. Promise to send something a little more exciting next week. Stay tuned because there is ALWAYS some sort of adventure going on here in the south of Mexico.
*sunrise sunset (#fiddlerontheroofforlife) My new apartment has a balcony and we get to see the sunrise every morning. Its pretty dang awesome.
*me and my new comp. Hermana Rivas from Coahuila Mexico! She's going to teach me how to make tortillas from scratch tonight. She's pretty much fabulous.
*the view from a members home. MUCH cooler in the day time but....you get the picture.
*back to the hills....
Its climbs like this that make me wonder how on earth Im still gaining weight.
Its the tortillas.
Las tortillas tienen la culpa.
