Today I rolled (almost literally) out of bed and into my skirt for the service meeting at 8:30am. YES. I said 8:30 0.o Fortunately it was in our living room, so at least we didnt have to walk far! It ended up just being Pablo, Isabel and us girls that met for service, which made a good enough service group, so out we went! We walked. And we walked. And then we walked a little bit more. Going to and from return visits at the homes of Deaf people. If the Deaf person wasn't home but a hearing person was, we talked with them anyways. It was really different and a little confusing cuz I'm still struggling to grasp the spanish language, but it was still good! Despite almost falling asleep during one study (mental note, never leave the house this early without eating breakfast and drinking LOADS of coffee!). Yeah, didnt feel too good during this morning, which didnt help the fact that I'm paranoid about getting sick here
After our nap we got all packed up to go to Rachael's FIRST BIBLE STUDY! Which is actually Rebeca's study but she gifted it to Rachael this week since they are going out of town. The girl that would be studied with lived a bit out of our way (and in an area that is considered pretty dangerous here...) so we decided to catch the bus. Little did we know that would be quite the adventure! Because of the protests going on around our little town we have no gasoline (or barely any). So the buses are only running once an hour (instead of 15 minutes) so the buses are PACKED! So many people! Soooo little space! On the way back home from the study on the bus we fit 52 PEOPLE on a 30 seater bus! It was awesome! Well... more like sweaty and smelly and awkward. I was practically sitting on someones lap (STRANGER DANGER!) Rachael was oober close to the door (I was sure she was going to topple out) and at one point when we stopped, a few guys in the back had to climb out the windows to get out of the bus! It was craaaazyyyyyyyy!!!
The study went really well
Its crazy how many people we have been meeting that are visiting here from out of the country. We met a woman from England who comes here whenever she can save up enough, and she helps with the schools. We also met a brother and sister from saskatchewan, Canada, who are here for dental work? Not sure. And then we met a man from california whos been here for three years but kept complaining to us about how boing it is here (if ur bored, why are u STILL HERE??)
On our way back home (after we got off the bus and was walking back to the house) we found a cow! And tried to feed it some stuuuuuuuuuufff! But it didnt like our stuff :( which consisted of sprite, grass and a stick so I don't really blame him lol. But it was nice to us nonetheless. Teeheee.
When we FINALLY arrived home, Meredith went on another study with Isabel, and me and the girls had some “juice”
AND THEN! (drumroll please...) we made ALMOJABANOOOOS!!!! (try and say that three times fast! Guess what. I can!) they are cute little fried thingys made out of corn and taste soooo goooood! Kind of like a corn dog without the dog... and look like little sea horses! (you could totally put on a puppet show with these guys XD)
Nuff said. Best way to end the day. Ever.
Al. Mo. ja. Ban. Oooooooooos!!!!
