hna maradiaga slipped in the mud the other day and skinned her knee pretty bad and almost twisted her ankle. She`s from a city part of Hondurez and is not accustomed to muck. I however can navigate the mud hole that is Ometoxtla like a pro, so all is well. Actually, the town is called Correnango but the ward here is Ometoxtla. It`s a pretty big area, maybe bigger than my last one so ì`m still going to have sick calves at the end of this transfer. I hope that i won`t be a gordita (chubster) though because i feel like they feed us more here. But today it`s sunny so I`m hoping all the clothes I washed (by hand because we didn`t have time to borrow mamatonia`s washer, will be all nice and dry. Today we didn`t do much, hna maradiaga got super sick and woke up sick to her stomach with a migrane and basically slept all day after our studies, but it was good because i needed to wash all the clothes i`d been neglecting for the past few weeks (gross but true, i`m know i`m disgusting) and organized and clean the house because it was in dire need of both, it was stressing me out how messy the house was, but now everything is clean and i`ve got clean clothes again! supposing all my skirts and shirts aren`t covered with fly specks which they probably are because we have to hang them up outside to dry.... there`s not really a way to hang them up inside..i guess i could buy hangers, because there isn`t that many in this house. If my things are still damp sometimes i use my hair dryer to dry them ....speaking of buying we had a little time to go to plaza san dieago today and i looked at shoes but i`m going to wait until next week because i want to ask hermana stelllmon when we have interviewsif i can use some that are sort of boot style because that would be stupendous. But I found a cute new bag that is perfect so i`m pretty pumped about that. i haven`t seen any hermanas con pantalones and most of them say they don`t want them but i`ve heard of one or two who said they`re going to buy some, and the poor girl did have a lot of bad looking bug bites on her legs so maybe she should. I`ve been doing okay, only one or two on my ankles when we walk through grass.
Time is a funny thing. I`m halfway through this transfer which seems insane, and in july i`m going to have eight months in the mission! i`m almost halfway done! but sometimes it really does seem to pass really slowly, especially this week when our numbers were bad, our investigators are hiding from us and it`s been raining like crazy. but i went on intercambios with hna estrada who was my very first hermana leader and so that was cool. she`s super great and i like her a lot, and their area in Cholula, the city is ADORABLE and touristy and super cute and there were parts of it that reminded me of portland and ughhhh.... it was sort of hard to come back to Ometoxtla after that to be honest.
but all is well, it`s a new week, we`ve got a zone training meetingand i`ve got clean clothes and a cute new bag so all is well.
sorry that i have no pictures again...... i`ll look through my photos and send something old if i find a good one.
lots of love
