It's just barely a month since he's been gone and I'm already backed up on updating yall with his emails!! Lots of them are personal, so I have to cut out a lot of what he says, which... makes little updates... So! Here we go!
"I've been getting better with my spanish and my socializing. Right after I sent the last email, I went into the big city of Lima, and hooooboy. I don't know if there are any videos on YouTube about the traffic in Lima, but it's nuts. I think I've managed to understand a couple rules of it though:
- stop signs aren't law, more like friendly suggestions.
- if the car fits, it's a lane. I guess that's why there are so many tiny cars here.
- People honk not to be rude, but to let you know they're a centimeter away from clipping you if you don't move.
- just force your way in, nobody sees the blinkers.wouldn't you know it, someone screwed it up for the rest of us, and we can't send pictures now. I want to talk to the mission president to see if we can make this not permanent, but until then, have a bit of patience. c:>
I just realized I'll be missing Halloween. I wonder how they celabrate it here.
My day is pretty heavily scheduled, but thankfully, I'm pretty fast at reading, so I have a few minutes of doodle time after personal study, and just before bed. Imagine being in a classroom for nearly 10 hours in your Sunday best. Needless to say, the hours stretch forever, but next thing you know, you've been in another country for 2 weeks already!
Considering how a notebook over here costs 30 soles (almost 10 bucks), I think I could afford to buy an expensive meal every now and then xp
Let me tell you too, the notebooks here aren't even lined. They're grids. Graph paper. That like an artistic sin, and horibble for writing. It drove me crazy, they don't have any ruled paper. I asked my parents to try and send me NORMAL notebooks, so we'll see how it goes.Also, I know that Guardians of the Galaxy and Ninja Turtles came out this week, how did the critics feel about them?"
I haven't seen either of the movies yet, so maybe yall can comment and tell me how they went. I don't care about spoilers for Bay-TMNT but if you spoil GotG for me I will be mad.
Until next time folks! --Miss Dippy aka Dipschtick
