ñ á é í ó ú
I arrived at the Peru MTC last night at 3 in the morning and immediately passed out on my bed. They let us sleep in until 9 which was nice. Many things are very different here. The showers aparrently only have 2 settings: freezing cold and skin melting hot. There is a faucet for cold water and a faucet for hot water, but it is impossible to get any mixture of cold and hot water at the same time. The grass is weird, it´s hard to explain how its weird, it just is. My fruit loops this morning tasted nothing like fruit loops, but I ate them anyway. I am currently typing on a weird Spanish keyboard that makes it really easy to do this: ñ á é í ó ú but the punctuation is in strange places. The climate so far is really nice.
I met my new companion; he is from Ecuador and speaks no English. I speak very little Spanish, so we don´t talk much. He seems like a nice guy though. I think my p-day is on Wednesdays now, but I don't know. There seem to be just about as many white missionaries as there are Latino missionaries and most of the staff speak decent English. I still need to learn a lot of Spanish quickly to have any idea what is going on.
I should probably write again in a week, but I don´t really know. The computer interface here is a bit more normal, so I should be able to email pictures now, but I don´t know for sure. Sorry for the disjointedness of this email, but I don´t have much time and the keyboard is really weird, so...
Until next time
