So this week has felt like an enternity! Hermana Reyes left for her home (sad) but I got my new trainer! Her name is Hermana Martinez (refer to subject) we had kinda a rough start, but after a few companionship inventories (which those RMs totally know everything about) we becoming pretty great friends! In only three days! So I can not wait to see what the rest of the transfer is like. It is really looking up!
I read Laura’s email about the DR (or in Spanish RD) and well… yep. ‘Bout sums up my life here. Need I add more? Rice and beans and Chicken. Sweating. Always thirsty. Crazy people cat-calling you in the streets (that wasn’t in the letter but I am sure that it happened often)
I got my birthday package! Hurray! The chocolate was just what I needed! And I love the skirt… and the scarves? Maybe you confused with me with the daughter you have serving in Siberia… jk. I love them. They are way cute, and I acutally wore one today! But I don’t think I would ever survive with this while I was working. But it is a way cute way to doll up an outfit! (as mom would say) But for reals, thanks for the package. I loved all the photos and little nick-nacks.
So our family Juan and Luisa have taken a step back, turns out Juan has been lying to us and smoking this entire time.. but hopefully her understands now how important it is. But you never know.
I didn’t get your letter this week yet, so I don’t have any questions to answer! But I hope this gives you a little fill of Nicaragua! (and seriously, Republica Dominica.. strange fruity drinks.. ice cream (Ice and cream) and rice and beans? Bout sums up the food here too 😉 I am glad you guys got to feel a little of Nica!
Love you lots!
